AM - 14 Sullivan. Hit them tempo before the meet like last week. Did a little better even though both achilles, especially the right, and I felt way flat. Didn't push much on the progression because I felt blah, so the first mile was slow at 6:02. Most of that was in the first half into Hells Hole. I didn't bring a light and I didn't want to die so I just chilled and came onto the loop section at just under a half in 6:30, so 2nd half was good. Then 5:52, 6:09, 6:02, 5:52, 5:47. The uphill really slowed me again. I was well under 6 on the first half of 3 and 2nd half of 4, the Dam Hill is really getting me right now. Sad that I am happy about sub 6:00's, but it's improving. (Adios 337.75)
Achilles didn't improve this week... Bummer.
Goals for next week: maybe back it off a little so that they can feel a little better. Wish I was in shape to, and had the time to, run the Southern Utah Half. Maybe next year I'll be there physically. Then I can make an assistant take the team and I'll run my race (if I have an asst.)
