AM - 7 Lutheran/AC.  Legs are a little sore and nothing zippy about them.  Hopefully a few days of easy running will take it out of them and I can get the workouts I want done this week.  Still coughing like a beast.  (Free 887.2)

afternoon - 8 Parkway.  Nice afternoon run by myself.  Still some soreness going on, but it is slowly working its way out.  I would much rather trade it haning out and get rid of my cough; it has been horrid the past couple days.  (Kinvara Lime 405)

AM - 7 Lutheran/AC.  Nice morning out, but I am just spent.  I was up coughing all night and wanted to get up earlier and get a few more miles in, but needed that extra half hour.  Got more medicine from the doc today, so hopefully it can clear up my cough and ear infection.  Need to get up around 100 this week, but being sick is making it tough.  (Kinvara White 93)

afternoon - 7 2xDI/2450.  Ran the warm and cool with the team around their 1600 time trial and then added on 2450 as they lifted.  Just trying to get some miles in and trying to get feeling better.  (Landreth black 1052.95)

AM - 7 Lutheran/AC.  Got the full Lutheran in (instead of the 3 and laps) because I actually got decent sleep last night and had a little more pep in my legs this morning.  I will probably need to do my tempo this afternoon instead of tomorrow morning because of some things, so I will plan on running with the top boys today if I feel well enough.  (Boston 1061.25)

afternoon - 13 PV Tempo loop. With no midweek tempo for The Circle of Trust, I decided to try and see what the legs would give me trying to stay with the boys. Which is pretty much what happened... Me trying to stay up with the boys. They got their gap on me in the first loop - 1.5 miles - and then it pretty much stayed. They went forty minute, but after 4 laps (6 miles) I could feel that I was pretty much done for the day, so they had to finish on their own (but I wasn't helping them anyway). I could tell the legs were still tired, and had some soreness, but it was nice to get out and move at a quicker pace and work a bit. Ave was 5:40. (Kinvara3 600)

AM - 7 Lutheran/AC.  Not nearly as jacked as I thought I might be... Actually felt pretty good.  The harder run yesterday helped loosen up my legs (except this lingering tightness in the hammies that keeps wanting to give me big issues).  (HyperSpeed 449)

afternoon - 10 2xDI/2450. Warm and cool with the team. Then ran 2450 after the team did weights. Felt pretty good on the last part after I really attacked my legs with the roller. (Ronin 300)

AM - 7 Lutheran/AC.  Started off tight again, but it worked out quickly and I had a good run.  (HyperSpeed2 423)

Root Beer Mile. 9:25 Noon - 1.25. At lunch today we had our 2nd (?) Annual Root Beer Mile - except last year we did egg nog around Christmas time, it was so much easier with the nog. This is the XC fundraiser for our Mr. PVHS kid (an area kid who has health or other problems that our whole school comes together to fundraiser for. We ended up raising right around $700 for Carter - very cool(the school is shooting for $10000 total! He race started off rough and I got out in about 5th after the first can of RB, but I struggled in the first 400 and a few kids passed me. I was already gut-hurt and the odds of repeating as champ seemed slim. The next laps were very similar and my stomach was overflowing. After burping I would feel much better - problem was that burping pushed the limits of puking. The last lap I barely got out before the winner came in. I did a huge burp on the backstretch and it was like popping a soda can - I didn't puke, but foam and and such came out, but I'm still claiming an iron gut! After the burp, I felt so much better and decided to kick for Jake. He looked back and saw me coming and really picked it up... I came up just short and finished 5th. It was a bit disappointing and I need to work on my carbonated racing skills. Next year all top 5 returners are back, so I'll really have to step up my game. (HyperSpeed2 424.25) afternoon - 5 Dino Tracks. Trail run and life was good. Maybe a little bloated! (VertK 300)

AM - 21 Marathon tempo loop (I think that is what Clyde calls it). Clyde had the good idea of a solid 21 instead of trying to dig out a harder tempo. That was good because the pace was enough to work without digging anything deep - which would have tough for all of us today I think. Good convo as always with The Circle and it was a good end to the week. Ave was 6:21 for the run. (Adios 145.5)

Glad to get my mileage in this week and run decent.

Goals for next week: freshen up the legs, taper a bit, finish getting rid of this cough and get my sinus/ear infection cleared up with a little more rest.
