AM - 8 PV/AC/DI.  My usual morning now.  A good night's rest goes a long way to making it easier to wake up.  A little hot in the right achilles this morning.  (Stratus grey 908.35)

afternoon - 12 Vernon Worthen.  Boys ran over to VW Park and back with a very solid 2 mile tempo at the end.  Then I lifted and did plyos.  Finished up by running home and Molly's Mile.  Running home after weights is kind of a pain, but it really helps cut away most of the soreness that lingers.  Should have iced the achilles tonight, but didn't.  It isn't too bad at all, but if I don't take care of it it could develop into something.  (Hyper Speed 172.5)

AM - 6 PV/AC.  Just six this morning.  Needed to get into school and get some stuff done; hopefully a few miles here and there help me keep my mileage lower this week.  (Landreth blue 709.65)

afternoon - 13 Dam Road.  Windy run out onto the Dam Rd. and then home followed right up by Molly's Mile.  Achilles is about the same, nothing too bad.  (Free 594.45)

AM - 10 Clyde's.  Just another run with the guys and various conversations.  A bit warmer out this morning with the clouds. (Oregon 274)

afternoon - 10.5 Dirty Sock.  Feeling a little tired, so luckily the run was pretty chill.  Got back and did 8xbarefoot striders, weights and plyos and then ran home and hit Molly's Mile.  (Barefoot '12 12)(Boston 818)

AM - 6 PV/AC.  Just over to school and 1 Arctic Circle today.  For trying to keep my mileage down I sure do have a lot of mileage.  Today and the rest of the week should help.  (old Ohana -6)

afternoon - 7 Owens/City Creek.  Trail Thursday.  Another good trail run with the team.  Went over by Pioneer Park and ran the City Creek Trail with the Owens Trail access.  Haven't run on that one for a really long time.  Good fun run and the temps were on the verge of warm.  (Triumph 787.5)

AM - 6 PV/AC.  Usual morning for this week.  Spent a lot of the time thinking about what my schedule will be next week.  (Kinvara 551.15)

afternoon - 7 Foremaster.  The boys moved their long run to tomorrow morning (and longer than planned - they are ready for it), so we went shorter today.  Finished with a bit around the school.  (F50 76.25)

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.
