AM - 6 2xAC.  Out in a drizzle this morning.  Thought I would be way sore, but nothing too bad.  We'll see a little more this afternoon when I run something harder.  (Cumulus gold 620.9)

afternoon - 11 Old Man Hills.  6x800 Old Man Hills for my workout today.  Did the first 3 with the boys and then finished up the others on my own as the team finished up their workouts on the hill.  Didn't time it (forgot my watch - and didn't want to wear my Garmin after the massive rain/hail/lightening storm that delayed practice 45 minutes), but that may have been for the best.  The effort was hard, really pushed myself, but I don't think I was hitting any great times.  (Boston 459.75)

AM - 11 Mall/2xAC.  Pretty tough morning to get up and run.  Has wiped me out all day.  But the run was fine, legs felt okay.  Enjoyed having Ruthie around for the last couple days.  (Landreth orange 869.1)

AM - 6 2xAC.  A little more tired today, but once I got going it was fine.  Trying to figure out when I will get a tempo in this week with meets and practice and junk.  (Old Ohana -6)

afternoon - 9 Dirty Sock.  A pretty easy pace that slowly picked up to near normal by the end.  8xbarefoot striders, weights, and Molly's Desert Run.  I guess I ought to go get some new shoes soon; everything is getting pretty worn down.  (Barefoot '11 19)(Stratus grey 708.35)

AM - 12 Target.  Not my favorite time to do a workout (early in the morning), but that what it will be basically from through UV and on to St. George - blah.  Warmed up 3 and then tried to get some Tinman Tempo in.  Aerobically I was totally fine, but my legs were just a bit tired and I had to work to keep up a decent pace, so I struggled to keep in under 6:10.  Went 7, with the last two not being too great as I struggled with the hills back through Industrial and up the lower section of Dog Pound.  Then two cool down in.  (Kinvara 308.15)

afternoon - 8 Green Springs.  Quite tired all day and on this run.  Hip was also giving a few problems before it warmed up.  I really should have hit the ice after the run, but forgot a cooler to fill up the tub with - I need to do that soon, it is just not as appealing this time of year; although it was very nice today.  (Triumph Silver 511.3)

AM - 6 2xAC.  Felt a little better today in the hip; heated it up yesterday and this morning and that seems to help.  This will today's only run - meet this afternoon - which is good; I need the recovery.  Put the Landreth blacks (2nd pair of Landreth 4's) over 1000 miles this morning. (Landreth black 1005.6)

AM - 21 2xClyde's Loop.  Plan was 1 loop easy and 1 loop tempo.  I was a bit tired still and hoped that things would go better than the tempo on Thursday.  Time wise it was okay about 58 min.  Ave. pace around 5:50, but I really had to work the whole time, and nothing came easy - in fact, without the group I would have really fallen off, but having them up ahead kept me at least trying.  Such a good workout though.  Got home and took the dog around the block.  (Boston 470.75)

Week wasn't great, all the workouts were slower than I have been in the past few months.

Goals for next week: Keep feeling healthy and try to get a few strong runs in, whatever they may be (Kind of a weak set of goals, but I don't want to pin myself down too much right now).
