AM - Big Workout #15 8 TM. SGM course. Ran with a good group of Steven, James, and Logan; fun group of guys to run with, we have fun and enjoy it, chatted about "Born to Run" with Logan since I read it Weds and Thurs. Kept it nice and chill as we enjoyed the cool temps up near Brookside. Coming off the volcano we move it into tempo. For the next 8 I hit 5:20's-5:50's (depending on the terrain) and worked on pushing off from the feet and keeping a quick, solid stride - to me it felt like running should really feel. Even though I had some kinks, I felt very good for not having run much this week and the pace was very easy to come by without overdoing it. Thoughts went to Holden for awhile as I moved away from everyone; its fun to think about him, but way sad too. Finished up and turned to go back and get everyone, and happily they were all just right on my tail; good runs for all. (Triumph 203.8)
What a week. Running couldn't have been more secondary this week, but it also was a wonderful release.
Goals for next week: Try and keep it focused during big workouts. Get ready for the meet. Get ready for school (Thursday, yikes). And keep on dealing with it all.
