morning - 11 PV/laps. Ran over to practice and did a DI warm. Ran a few more laps and then jumped in with some of the up and comers for there mile repeats at 6:00 pace. A good pace formy tired legs and nice to run with those guys. They are great guys and very hard workers. Cooled for bit. PV legend, Corey Kimzey, was there and it was a lot of fun running with him, reminiscing about old workouts and hearing him laugh. Getting married this summer - good luck!

noon - 5.5 home/dirt mile. Stayed at school and did a bunch of grading. Then ran home, picked up the dogs and went and ran on the Dirt Mile. (Peg 234)

morning - 12 River Run/dirt mile. Ran 60 mins for practice and then came home and took Twix around the Dirt Mile a couple times. And finished going around the block with Laney. Both achilles were on fire today. Not a good day for them. (Kinvara green 318.75)

afternoon - 4.5 Dirt Mile. Don't know if this was the best decision with my bum legs, but they actually felt decent. Warm day; long day working in the yard. (F50 804.75)

morning - 12 Twix/laps. Took the dog on her loop and saw one of the most inspiring sunrises I have ever had the privilege of witnessing. The hues were stunningly vibrant and alive. I wish I had a pic (I did see a few on facebook and they were pretty great), but to tell the truth pics wouldn't do it justice. Then at practice just did DI and then laps and cool with the team. Corey was there again - love running with that guy. Both achilles felt some positive vibes from Mother Earth today and cooperated a bit. (Peg 246)

afternoon - 4.5 Dirt Mile. Up and around again today. Let he destruction of our earth continue in the name of the almighty dollar. More homes and townhomes going in, so we must destroy the dirt mile some more. (Kinvara lime 600.5)

morning - 11.5 Twix/Mustang Pass. Out with the dog in a slight drizzle this morning and then onto Mustang Pass in reverse for practice. The trail was really getting overgrown with weeds, so it was good to get some feet on it. Wore a new pair of Mizuno Wave Riders. Mizuno aren't my favorite shoe, but I needed something to help out my achilles. They felt fine and there is some continued progress on both of them. (Riders 11.5)

afternoon - 6.5 Highland. Up to lower Grapevine and onto the Highland loop trail. It was a good run - super easy pace because I was burnt out from working in the yard all day, but it was a nice run. And continued progress on both achilles. Wore the Riders again for the lift. (Riders 18)

morning - 12 Runway/Old Mans. Took Twix out toward Lower Grapevine - I am so sick of trying to keep her calm that I just gave in and went somewhere I can let her off leash. She loved it and at least I didn't have to fight her for some of the run. Then at practice we did Old Man Hills and I ran with the girls. It was great, they really push each other. Right achilles a bit toastier today than the last day or two. (Peg 258)

afternoon - 4 Runway. Pyper road he bike with me as I went up the runway again to measure it (since my watch died this morning on me). It was fun having her around. Worked hard in the hot sun again and I wasn't up to more than that, plus the leg hurt and so I took it way easy. (Riders 22)

morning - 10 North Desert.  Took the dog around a bit and then tried to get into a tempo.  I could tell right away that it wasn't happening, so I took a quick break and then tried again.  Still no legs.  So I cut it and just went into the desert and ran around a bit.  This week was just a bit too much for me with more miles, both achilles and the hard yard work.  Oh well.  (Adios 309.75)

Decent week, but a bummer end.

Goals for next week:  it just gets busier from here on out.  Goal is to try and get some running in and survive.
