AM - 10 Twix/River Run. Contrary to someone's (@LilD) popular belief, the. The boys did NOT ditch me this morning - I actually felt pretty good (better than Saturday), I just didn't want to overdo it after racing two weekends in a row after having not raced in a year and having my longest run in over a year; so... ran a couple with Twix before practice and then 8, mostly with the team, on the River Run. When they started their pickups, I kept on cruising along and headed back. Hit abs back at school. (Peg black33 83.75)

AM - weights and abs.  Really a blah morning.  I've been having a very hard time sleeping lately.  If I wake up in the night so many things run through my head that I have trouble getting back to sleep.  So this morning I didn't get up at my alarm like I had planned.  Then when I did drag out of bed, I let myself lay down and go back to sleep for about 20 more minutes before practice.  Kind of bummed because Twix didn't get her run in and I still feel tired.  Really just at a stressed blah point right now.  The quarter needs to be over; our invite needs to be over... then I can enjoy school and track and let things out of my head.  

afternoon - 7.75 Albino.  Didn't feel too shabby this afternoon.  Temps are on the rise.  (Peg blue 426.75)

AM - 11.5 Twix/track.  Ran a few with the dog and then at practice we did some track work after a warm to Harts and then a cool around the 10 min loop.  The work was 2x1200, 2x(2x400, 600) all at CV pace.  Felt pretty good.  I have always really enjoyed the 1200 distance; I don't know why.  I just remember doing 1200's as a Freshy and really killing them.  It is actually one of the events in my life that sticks out as an "I should really be a runner" type of thought.  On the 600 however, my hammy started to tighten up pretty good.  So I pulled out and didn't get the second set in - just jogged around to try and loosen up. The mornings are awesome right now.  (Peg gre 305.25)

afternoon - 3.25 Sandburgs.  Easy run around in the Sandburgs desert.  I always envision an awesome XC course there.  If only I had a few million dollars I could buy it - anybody want to start a gofundme? (Riders 700.25)

AM - 5.25 Parkway. Twix and I had a good solo run on a beautiful spring morning. Then weights and abs. (Cumulus 281.5)

afternoon - 6.5 GS. Up and around Green Springs in a round about way. Pace was quick today after a very long heinous day. I am increasingly worried about the future of ... everything. I am also very frustrated in track - if it wasn't for my team (the good kids who really put in a great effort), I wouldn't mind being done with it all. I uses that's what I'll try and focus on.

AM - 8.5 Parkway/AC. Twix and I varied the Parkway a little. Then AC at practice. Finished up yoga and abs. (Peg black33 92.25)

First track meet of the year. Kids did well today. Fun to see some coaching friends that I haven't talked to in a few months.

AM - 6.75 Parkway. What a beautiful morning. Really wished I had more time to just be out cruising along and doing something that brings me peace and joy. Twix enjoyed the run as well, I am sure. (Peg blue 433.5)

Not a bad week for all that it was. Rested the hammy, but then pushed it a bit on the workout. Only got a couple doubles in and a short Saturday and still hit okay mileage. 

Goals for next week: decompress before the worst week of the season. Running will be secondary, but I'm sure Logan and I will get out and enjoy it a bit.
