AM - 6 Parkway/DI. Felt quite a bit better this morning, so I was able to get a few miles in with Twix. Achilles felt good today, too. It took me a while to remember that it was probably because of the extra day off this weekend. Finished up with abs. (Riders 686.25)

afternoon - 11.75 Parkway. Felt pretty solid this afternoon as well. Most of the team seems to be recovering from the colds that have been going around. We threw in some fartleks as usual and it helps the run go smoothly. (Peg grey 277)

AM - 25 minute walk with Twix and then abs and weights.  You would think that the ab workout and weights would be getting a little easier with time... its not.

afternoon - 6.25 Mustang Pass.  Lungs were burning from the remnants of the cold.  But by the time we peaked out on the pass, I was getting into a decent groove and felt better.  The trail was in decent condition.  (Sense 191.5)

AM - 11 Twix/Hospital.  Good morning run.  Temps are nice and comfortably chilly and it was just a nice morning.  Achilles is holding up pretty decent so far this week.  Finished up with my ab workout.  (Peg Oly 255.5)

afternoon - 8 Track. Same workout as last week. We feel that this is really going to develop some quality development for the team. Today I ran on the quicker side with Carson. (Pace blue 114.25)

AM - yoga and abs.  

afternoon - 9.5 DI/track. Warmed and cool with the DI around a 30 minute tempo on the track. Started out at 6:20 for awhile, then Carson started to feel a little better. So he and I picked it up down to 6:00. Felt smooth and strong. Happy with it. (Adios 457)

morning - 11 Rim Trail. Headed over to Hurricane later in the day so I could eat breakfast with the kids and catch some more sun (what an awesome time of the year in Southern Utah). Twix took he lead for the first three and then she really started to uncharacteristicly struggle and I had to pull her for the rest of the way. I probably would have pushed out at least 15, but was worried that Twix might not make it back. Had a strong pace on the way back and got a good negative split. It felt awesome to glide across the trail. Amazing scenery out there. (Sense 202.5)

Good week. By the end of the week, I actually felt like a real runner for the first time in recent memory - I loved it!

Goals for next week: keep working on the little things that seem to be helping my health (abs, eccentric heal drops, etc), and push up the miles and pace as the body allows.
