AM - 6 Treadmill.  After the glutton last night, I worried a bit about this run.  But it was actually decent.  Felt fine throughout - maybe even better than a usual Monday morning run.  (Five Fingers 456.6)

afternoon - 10.5 4x1000.  Warmed up (and cooled down) with 2450.  Wasn't sure what to expect on 1000's.  Haven't done really any speed since hurting my calf back in December (but I had some decent sets of 800's before that), and I am not really a fan of 1000's - especially by myself and on the track.  But I tried to have a reasonable goal of 3:15 down to 3:10.  First one felt good and relaxed and I hit a 3:11 (2 min recovery), so I pushed out a little stronger on the next one and hit 3:08.  Still felt good and planned on doing 4 so I tried to repeat the same and hit a 3:07.  for number 4 I figured it would as good a time as any to push a little more and although I tightened up a little on the last 400, I hit a 3:05.  The best set of 1000's I have ever had.  Ran relaxed and smooth (for the most part) and gained some confidence that maybe I am in decent shape.  Ended with Molly's Mile pushing Laney like usual (when she doesn't run with me).  (Ohana racers 488.75)

AM - 5 Warm Springs.  As to be expected, not a whole lot in the ol' legs this morning.  Pretty mild out.  (Cumulus white 852.4)

afternoon - 8.25 Devil.  Went out on the Devil's run.  Felt predictably tired and flat, so an easy run was needed/deserved.  Ended with weights and Molly's Mile.  (Landreth orange 841.1)

afternoon - 10.5 Foremaster.  Foremaster Tempo this afternoon.  Again a few seconds quicker on each section - boys are doing great with it.  Then extended it around Mosquito Mile to get to our total.  Molly's Desert Run.  (Stratus grey 692.35)

AM - 5 Buena Vista.  Tired this morning, like usual.  A little colder than earlier in the week.  (Cumulus gold 602.9)

evening - 10.75 Club.  Hit the usual club run.  A good solid run, reminiscent of last week - 6:40 ave. with a decent little pick up for the last few miles; nothing crazy, but good throughout.  We all jumped on an idiot biker who dared give us some lip - after the afternoon I had, he is lucky I didn't run him down and push him off that piece of junk.  (Triumph silver 485.8)

afternoon - 8.5 Fields.  Out into the fields.  Calf was a bit sore/tight, so I should have had some compression on.  But run was just fine.  Ended with weights and Molly's Desert run.  (Landreth blue 561.15)

morning - 19.5 Dogtown 1/2 course.  Steve, Logan and I ran from my house to Coral Canyon and the start of the Dogtown course.  Ran in down CC (nice easy starting miles), up the dump hill (will be a tough part of the course), down the dump hill and across the bridge (hill is too steep to use to best advantage and the dirt until the bridge will have to be graded or there will be many mad runners), down the dam road (another good section once you crest out on the dam road), around Nicholls (tough little hill for me), out to Staheli's Farm and and 1 mile out-and-back toward Warner Valley (not a bad section, but out-and-back is just naughty by nature), and then across Fields by the old Hooper Mansion and to a park to finish (not a bad finish section).  We pushed pretty decent throughout and had a Tinman section (with a couple a little quicker) for about 8 miles and then a little cool down.  Ave. was 6:30 something for the 18 - not bad with a couple very tough hills.  Then added a bit with Molly down by the elementary.  (Boston 436.75)

Probably my strongest week since back before St. George.

Goals for next week: speed will be hills on Monday.  We are starting up morning practices (3 days), so I need to work on making my schedule mesh while still giving myself 2 mornings (or afternoons) off per week to keep the hip feeling good and legs fresher.
