AM - 8 AC/Mall.  Wore the Altra Zero Drop for the first time this morning.  I could tell right off the difference in form - not that the shoe changes your form, but the shoe gives off signals (through the slapping of the feet, the feel, the sound) that your form needs to improve.  It really brought me up front on my feet and into a  better posture and overall form.  My right calf may be a bit sore later as I could feel it from the shoes.  I decided that from the wear on my other shoes and the feel of this run, my right leg is "lazy" compared to my left - causing the left to overwork, and maybe the cause for the prolonged hip flexor troubles in the left hip - I think this may be just a linger result of the stroke as it wiped out my right side a bit.  (Altra 8)

afternoon - 4 2xDI.  Needed to get a little bit in at least this afternoon.  JV meet tomorrow and the big boys (and girls) were on the track today, so I hit the warm up and cool down with them.  Then weights/drills and a full set of plyos.  (Cumulus gold 630.9)

AM - 12 Mall/2xAC/laps.  Tried to get a few more in this morning because of today's meet - won't be able to run later.  A little sore/fatigued from combination of plyos and the zero drop shoes.  (Altra 20)

AM - 13.5 2xMall/AC.  Dragged out of bed - actually not too bad, but I am a bit tired.  I think I am ready for a weekend (too bad I don't get one this week!).  Track season is so difficult and time consuming; I am ready for summer.  (Stratus grey 754.35)

afternoon - 8 2xDI/laps.  Ran the warm and cool with the team and laps while they hit their workout.  (Altra 28)

AM - 12 Target.  8.5 miles of Tinman.  Not a bad workout.  Had the usual few slips with speed because of darkness and being alone, but stayed pretty much where I needed to.  Hip was acting up a bit as it got warmed up.  (Ohana racers 542.25)

afternoon - 6 Shoe Run.  Easy run with the team and 8xbarefoot striders.  Hip felt the worse it has in quite a long time - hurt throughout the run, only started to feel better during the striders.(Altra 33)(Barefoot '11 28)

AM - 6 2xAC.  Got to love the easy day.  I used to hate myself for a day like this, now I relish in it!  (Not for the lack of running, but for the chance to get my legs feeling better.)  (Free 436.35)

AM - 15 Fields.  9 mile Tempo.  Wasn't up super early this morning, as I only needed to be done by 7:00 - so that was nice.  Planned on getting in 9 tempo - with sets of 3 miles at Tinman, just over marathon pace, and just under MP.  Warmed up 4 and then got into the tempo moving past the Chipman's.  Felt good for the 3 Tinman; had to hold myself back a little as I knew the rest would be tough.  The next 3 were planned at 5:45, and those were on, but while some felt easy, the last one was tough and I worried about going quicker and if I would be able to hit the last set.  Moved into the 5:30 section and really just had to gut it out - but I got it.  Interesting how you can feel so different on the same run, up and down and all over the place.  Good workout though, really good workout.  (Kinvara 330.15)

Solid week: Hit two good tempo paced workouts, mileage was solid, kids ran very well this weekend and were hitting qualifiers and PR's all over the place - girls even ended up getting 2nd at the invite!

Goals for next week: Mileage shouldn't be and issue as I will have Friday off from school and plan on a longer run then (with a little tempo) and also plan on some quicker stuff earlier in the week.
