AM - 6 AC/2450.  Thought about not wearing the five fingers, as my feet kind of hurt all evening like they were bruised.  But I wore them anyway, and after a few tender steps they felt fine.  (Five Fingers 249.35)

afternoon - 11.25 2xmile+4x200.  Warmed up DI (cool down also) and then track work.  Miles were strong at 5:29 (with the last on the 2nd set at 5:22) and tried hard on the 2's (I just don't have the foot speed at all to hang near the boys on those).  Molly's Mile.  (old Ohana -11.25)

Five Fingers Miles: 6.00
Total Distance

AM - 6 AC/2450.  Felt decent this morning, not too much soreness in the hip today.  (Five Fingers 255.35)

afternoon - 8.5 Grass/track.  Ran 4 barefoot on the fields and then had to run a bit on the track.  Finished with Molly's Desert run.  (Barefoot '10 39.5)(Cumulus gold 515.25)

AM - 11.25 2450/AC/Mall.  Ran just over 6 and then 5 at TM pace.  Kept it pretty solid throughout, but a bit tired from Wed's workout.  (Stratus grey 465.35)

noon - 18.5 Quail.  A better long run, but still not where I want it to be.  Ran reverse today hoping it would help be hit a little better tempo section, but it sets up two killer hills within 3 miles of each other.  Ran 9 at around 7:00 pace nice and smooth and then tried to get into something close to a marathon pace (UV predicted pace 5:45-5:50), but I was more toward 6:00-6:10 for the first bit.  Then I finally relaxed into it and had a good mile, but then it was time for the climbs.  I did decent on them and kept the effort pretty solid.  Finished up the 9 miles at tempo feeling okay about how I did.  Hip didn't act up until the last three miles.  (Boston 120)

Week was okay.  Some decent workouts, but hip started to hurt toward the end of the week.  It was more the kid pushing me off balance at school than the mileage though (I think) that caused it to hurt.

Goals for next week: Probably a few less miles (no long run planned and a two day meet).  More of a survival type of week.
