midnight - 33 Clyde's b-day run.  Don't read on unless you want your mind blown!

Sometimes I wonder what we are doing... and then there are times like this.  Took off at midnight for Clyde's 33rd b-day run, which means 33 miles.  Left Clyde's with Logan and Steve as well.  Went on our summer tempo loop (the trail is finished by the way) and then 2x's Clyde's loop.  I was tired, tired, tired.  And by the end the constant beating of the road was taking a toll and my legs were feeling it.  Throughout the whole thing I think we were all just wondering if it was all really happening.  Yes!  It was real.  Got back to school at 5:00 and laid down for a power nap.  We'll see if I survive the day and the week now.  (Connect 108.25)

I think this was up there with my first 50 miler out in the hills by myself that ended at midnight as the craziest running thing I have ever done.

AM - 9 3/4's.  A bit tight in both hips this morning.  Not the usual (but getting much better) hip pain in my left; just very tight.  Hopefully that will work out after a few days of easy running and rolling and yoga.  (Stratus black 978.45)

afternoon - 11.5 Devil's Run.  With the boys, out around the townhomes with the dirt extension.  Then some striders and back home.  Added in a little with the dog to go get one of the girls from her friends house.  (Barefoot '12 28)(Oregon 358)

AM - 10 Clyde's.  Just in case I didn't get enough of this run in the other night!  Legs are still pretty sore/tight, but it is slowly working its way out.  I don't know how zesty I'll be for my first track race in 15 years this afternoon - yikes!  (Free 634.45)

Panther Relays 1600m - 4:48

Logan had the idea of putting together and open 1600 at a couple of the meets, so I figured we would try it.  We didn't get much out of the community, but it gave Logan and I a chance to run.  Clyde came and warmed up a bit but headed home sick.  So I ran 3 before the meet and during the meet when I could.  Then hit the race and cooled with a mile.  I wasn't so sure about this event.  I hadn't raced on a track in 15+ years and I was still feeling the effects of the 33 miler and add to that I really wasn't warmed up, so I thought a sub 5 would be superb.  Logan and I started off chasing a few high school kids that thought they would want to try this thing and we reeled them in pretty easy.  I hit splits of 1:14 and 1:14 and was feeling a bit tight and blah, but where I needed to be.  Logan gapped me by a few steps at the end of the 2nd and throughout the 3rd, so I tried to tell myself to relax and just stay in it.  Hit the 3rd in 1:13 and then moved up on Logan on the back stretch of the 4th.  Here I started to loosen up a bit and smell the line, so I lifted my knees and pushed a little.  I hit a 1:07 and finished with the 4:48.  Pretty happy; I think I could go sub 4:40 feeling fresh and with some confidence - maybe even hit the state qualifier if I worked a little!  (Rocket 334.25)  Raced in my XC spikes; it was different to have spikes on.

AM - 10 GS/AC/Lutheran.  A little twist to the 3/4's since I drove to school today.  Woke up just a little earlier (but not early enough to hit the Meet Run) so that I could drive home for Ry's family b-day party after practice and my XC meeting.  (Triumph silver 691.55)

afternoon - 7 Shoe/laps.  Ran the Shoe and hit the pond.  Then a few laps around before and XC meeting.  Drove to school today because I wanted to get home quick after the meeting for Ry's b-day party.  (last Ohana 296)

AM - 11 Meet Run.  The usual run on the morning of a meet.  It was warm this morning; it is going to be beastly this afternoon.  (F50 162.5)

AM - 15 Prospector.  Out and back on Prospector.  Felt great today and really pushed the pace.  It took me less time than a road 15 often does.  I really enjoyed it.  (NB 101 516.75)

Week was solid (even after the crazy start).  

Goals for next week: Try to keep the mileage solid with 2 meets (that is always tough to do - will mean more early-early mornings).  Need come climbing, but I don't know when I will hit it.
