AM - 14.5 Dog Town 1/2 Course. Met up with the Varsity boys and ran down the 1/2 course. Run was good and the boys did a great job for their first time over ten (they went 11) in a long time (first time over 10 ever for a few of them). I like the course, it has a couple tough sections, some fair sections, and some fast sections. I tempoed from 7-13 (which was at the top of the Dam Rd.). Wondered how great it would go on a solo effort, but was pretty solid. Hit 5:10's-5:20's on the quicker sections, 5:30's on the flats and kept it under 6 on the ups without a killer effort. Ended up with 13.5, so hopefully the extra mileage was me taking the biggest hill up too high into a neighborhood (that would be nice 'cause the hill was tough, but the top was the steepest). Then came home and added Molly's Mile. (Mana 153.25)
Week was okay. I kind of felt like I was still getting too much mileage in for an off week, but here are my thoughts on that: the tiredness worked itself out by the end of the week, so I must have been recovering somewhat; when the goal becomes up around 120 or so then 100 does become an off week; I felt great at the end of the week and was super antsy to do more today and wasn't tired at all (let alone dead) at the end of today's run, so that is a good sign; and most importantly, I feel good.
Goals for next week: going to see some strong mileage and some strong workouts on hills.
