morning - 8 track. Ran 2x1600 with the girls at just over six mins. Then we switched upto 1000's and two. More of those because they all seemed kinda flat this morning. Long weekend and Easter candy will do that to you. (Kinvara blue 228.25)

afternoon - 7 highland trail. After a long day of yard work, I went up to the trail on top of Highland and did a loop. Will miss the days off. Big push until the end of the year now. (Riders 123.25)

Panther Relays 1600. 4:53

Was able to warm up a little in between timing the kids in all their races. I really wasn't looking forward to this race. It is just for fun, but earlier this year I had set some high goals; however, because of my bum achilles and coaching constraints, I hadn't been able to train like I had hoped. It was also super windy, so a sub 5 was the new goal. Went out in 1:15 behind Greg, Logan and one of his 8th graders. The second lap, I just kept chilling with a 1:16. I wasn't really into race gear. Third lap was another 1:16 and Logan pulled away from me by about 20 meters (I had passed the others going into the 2nd lap). In my mind I decided to give a push and see what happened on the final lap. It was a fun environment - all the kids were cheering and yelling for their coach and such. I started closing pretty quick on Logan onto the backstretch and I felt pretty confident I had him. He must have figured I was coming and he worked at 200 out. But I kept closing and ent ring the home stretch I knew I had him. I pulled even at 50 and the crowd was really rocking - kids were lining the inside and lane 3-4 of the track. I got a step up on him at about 20... Then like a monster Logan fought back and pulled so close to even (trying to stick his arm out to pass me at the line! That's track inexperience there!). We seriously were super close, but I would have to say I got him by probably .1 or so! The one good thing about it was that I closed in about a 66 or 67 off of no training. But my chest felt like it. I totally had (still have) the runners hack. Cooled for a little with Rylee at the end of the meet. (Mana 731.25)(didn't dare wear spikes with how bad my legs have been hurting)

AM - 7 Twix/Sunrise. Getting closer to waking up at the old usual time. I'll get back there eventually. (Peg 313)

afternoon - 8 Green Springs/Nissons. Up to the top of GS with the boys and then into Washington. Did 3x2/1/30 fartlek. I didn't have a lot of zest after yesterday's run, but it was good to try and push with the guys. Hopefully I can get out with them a little more now as I have basically decided that if the dang sprinters and such don't care to put in effort at track, I am not going to waste my time with them. Maybe an administrator will care enough to hire an actual sprint coach instead of the kind of show up once in awhile patchwork of coaches we got going now. (Kinvara white 403.75)

AM - 8 Twix/Sunrise. Still cool out in the mornings (like 40 today). I'll take it. (Riders 137.75)

afternoon - 6 Shoe. One of the most fun runs I have had in awhile. Sometimes I get frustrated with em, but I really do get to work with a great group of kids. Boys worked on handoffs while the girls and I worked through this week's race assignments. Then the guys and I went on the usual pre-race shoe run. We found a mine raft sword to drop at the Ell's, but that was only the beginning. The city was working on the trail and some bozo made get off the trail. So instead of turning back, we got into the river and started running up it when I found a dead beaver! It was truly cool. I thought it was a log at first then I noticed its tail and we all viewed for awhile until Nick grabbed its tail. It would have been the greatest Ell's drop ever, but no one dared drag it out of the river and up the hill. (Kinvara green 324.75)

AM - 4 Sunrise.  Somehow my alarm didn't go off this morning and I woke up just in time to get to practice.  It was really wierd I checked and rechecked it and it was totally set correctly.  Hmmm?  (Riders 141.75)

AM - 14 Sullivan.  Went and ran my tempo (attempt) early this morning before the meet.  Times weren't great, but I made it through and that was good.  Added a little with the dog before I had to leave.  A couple miles were sub 6 and the othere were just above or right at 6:00.  The hill was where I felt the lack of tempo the most.  Suprisingly, the last mile of the 6 tempo (with 2 progression before) was the best at 5:49.  (Adios 323.75)

My best week in awhile.  Got some doubles and workouts in; both achilles showed some progress.

Goals for next week: will be a bit busier again.  Try and use the time to keep the achilles going in the right direction.
