AM - 10 DI/2xAC and some laps.  Hit a few more this morning, as I have a meeting this afternoon that will limit my run a little.  Back is still a bit sore and tight after sleeping on it wrong Saturday night and pinching a nerve, but it is improving.  (Landreth black 384.8)

afternoon - 8 Treadmill.  Had a meeting after school, then I went a lifted.  After lifting headed home to watch the girls.  Took the dog around the block and then ran on the treadmill for 7 more at 7:30 as I watched Boston Indoor Games.  (Landreth  613.85)

AM - 6 Washington Loop.  Tried to make an excuse - any excuse - to sleep in today, but nothing worked.  So I dragged out of bed and ran the usual and took the dog around.  Kind of chilly out again.  (Stratus bee 470.3)

afternoon - 9 Green Springs/DI.  Nice and easy to the top of Green Springs, and then I added DI.  Finished with 8xbarefoot striders.  A little tired today. (Stratus black 182.95)

AM - 11 3xAC and some laps.  Would have slept in if it wasn't for those meddling kids waiting for me at practice.  (cumulus white 519)

afternoon - 11.55 River Trail.  Ran DI as a warmup w/ the team.  Then went down to the River Trail to get in a little Tinman work.  I really wasn't feeling it at all and wanted to just drag the run, but I need to pick up the pace every now-and-then; so I went for 2x2 miles at 6:00 pace w/ 1 mile recovery between.  Once I got going it actually was pretty easy and I didn't have to work to hit the pace it just came.  Got back and lifted and then ran a grass loop to stretch out the legs after.  (Cumulus gold 206)

AM - 6 Washington Loop.  Just the regular morning business.  Wanted to stay in bed of course, but something Al said when the alarm went off got me out and moving.  Thanks for the push even though you didn't realize it.  Then took the dog around the block (forgot to yesterday, after practice, so she need to go out today).  (Cumulus blue 531.65)

evening - 8.1 Club run.  Went out and hit the Parkway.  I was pretty tired and so I just chilled it and chatted it up with everyone; it was pretty nice.  (Stratus bee  478.4)

AM - 11 Green Springs and 2xAC with some laps.  Still a little fatigue in the legs this morning.  Did my core stuff like I have been doing most every day.  (Landreth black 395.8)

afternoon - 11.5 6x1000.  Went out early to practice with the intent of getting in 3 extra miles before the team, but there was a baseball tournament taking up my barefooting grass, so I had to get the mileage with big loops.  The team got out and we warmed up with DI.  Then got into our 1000's.  Most everybody did 2, but Kimz, Austin and I hit 6.  I wasn't too excited to do these, but knew that once we got started it would be fine.  First two were 3:17, then two at 3:16, then the fifth at 3:15.  On the last one, I was on 3:15 pace for 600, then decided to see if the old legs could give a little more and hit a solid last lap for a 3:07.  Finished with a slow, tired DI cool.  Got home and took the dog around.  (Stratus black 195.45)

morning - 18.5 Little Black Mt.  Headed out on the AZ Strip again for a little run.  At first I was thinking 15, but ended up with a little more.  I wanted to find the old Jeep road that goes up the mountain, but I could find where it started, so I continued onward.  Instead of head to the petroglyphs, I went out to the power lines.  Looping around, I tried an off-beat trail that took me up to the face of some cliffs.  I was about to do a 15 ft. free climb to the top but didn't feel so great about it, so I worked my way off the steep hillside and tide up with another road.  I soon realized why I shouldn't have gone up the cliff - coming around a hill, a deep dry wash canyon made the cliff I was about to climb a huge finger; if I would have gone up, it would have added probably another 10 miles to the run to get around the canyon, or I would have had to rock climb back down the cliff face (either would have sucked - and I was happy I heeded the feeling).  Got back to the car and came home to take the dog around the block and work on sprinklers all day.  (Landreth 632.35)

Week went pretty good.  That lower ab pain has been coming back here and there for a couple weeks and yesterday set it off pretty strong, but today felt okay.

Goals for next week: Practice is starting up for real next week, so goal is to try to find the balance of time for my running and time for the team.
