AM - 6 AC/Lutheran.  Windy and warm this morning.  Supposed to by Pyper's track meet today, but I don't know if they'll be able to pull it off.  The usual Monday junk in the legs this morning.  (924.65)

afternoon - 11 4x1600. Started off with 3 miles on the track and then a Harts warm (and cool) with 4x1600. The weather was pretty cool and rainy and windy. So I wasn't sure how the team would do, but everyone did awesome - they are all ready for some strong times. I barely hung in there with the boys; me dragging off the back. 5:10, :12, :13, :10. It is a beast workout for me, but it is a good one. Weights after. (Rocket 657.75)

AM - 6 AC/Lutheran.  Not as jacked as I thought I would be, but that will set in later I'm sure.  Gave the girls a good scare on the run this morning!  (Free 777.45)

afternoon - 8 2xAC/laps. Warm and cool with the team with laps while they were on their workout. Finished up with a mile with Pyper and the dog. My right heel - in the back, like the lowest connection of the achilles has been hurting a bit lately and I could really feel it today. Made me run like an old man. (Zero 191.75)

AM - 10.25 Clyde's.  Chilly morning run with Clyde.  Good convo and a decent run.  (Oregon 589)

afternoon - 14 Grass/Foremaster. Lower Achilles didn't feel any better today. Running on the grass was pleasant excepting the Achilles. Then ran Foremaster with the team, followed by striders which were exceptionally painful. Finished up with weights. Some good funny moments throughout the practice: told the boys about James' name for the run, Byron's motorcycle, Michael laughing so hard he dropped the weights on his chest, and Mike's shower during striders! Good stuff. (Barefoot '13 50.5)(F50 480.5)

AM - 6 AC/Lutheran.  Was actually pretty awake and could have gotten up earlier for a few more miles, but I was worried about my heel/achilles after yesterday.  It ended up feeling pretty good this morning though.  So I will finish off the week without anything too crazy and hopefully turn the corner on it.  (Connect 522.75)

afternoon - 10 DogPound/Parkway.  Achilles seeing a little more improvement.  But I tried to put in a hill push thinking that I hadn't done any in awhile, and that wasn't a good idea.  So I cut that out quick and just kept it easy.  (Mana 337.5)

AM - 6 AC/Lutheran.  Why is it that my body is ready to wake up a little earlier now when I am trying to keep my mileage down a little, but when I want to get up to run it never wants to be awake?  Did the usual run this morning with less pain in the achilles than yesterday - hooray.  But there is still a burn in there a bit.  This is my only run today (with a meet this afternoon) and tomorrow I won't go crazy, so hopefully things will be on the up and up by Monday.  (Kinvara3 337)

AM - 10 Junction. I nearly didn't go out this morning. My leg hurt pretty bad last night, and I was pretty tired this morning when the alarm went off. But after laying there for about five minutes I dragged myself out. Although my Achilles heel still hurt a lot, I was really happy I went out and ran - just a very nice morning. Then off to another day at the track. My heel really hurt by the end and I had a noticeable limp - pretty bummed about that... but the team ran great! (Triumph silver 855.05)

Week was what it was.

Goals for next week: got get the leg better first and foremost.
