AM - 8 Middleton.  Mostly morning runs will be from my house now - and that will be the real test of the winter... will I wake up to run or give myself excuses; there are always excuses.  Today, got up; I won, not excuses!  Monday's, however, aren't usually that tough for me to get up, it is later in the week that sleeping starts to look real good.  (Rocket 161.5)

afternoon - 11.25 PVMS/DI/2450.  Ran down to the middle school for a little workout of Wave Hills and then back to school for some 200's and 100's (which I just ran - nothing hard for me; leg wouldn't like it right now) and then DI for cool.  I then continued on with 2450.  Then Molly's Mile at home.  (Boston 755)

AM - 8 Mall.  Tried to give into the excuses this morning (tweaked my back a little yesterday), but still got up for some reason.  Glad I did, run was good.  Some pretty good progress with the leg these last few days.  Have been wearing compression socks through the weekend and the last couple days and that seems to really help control the pain and make stuff improve.  So hopefully only a few more days and I'll have that taken care of.  (Hyper Speed 98.25)

afternoon - 10.25 PVMS/DI.  Ran over to middle school and ran a few miles on the grass over there (not barefoot, however) and then finished off the PVMS loop.  I extended up around the DI and then Molly's Mile at home (with a little extra).  Felt very clunky and like junk today.  Goal for me is to get it through Thursday morning - then the rest of the week will be much lighter, being down in Phoenix.  (Landreth blue 691.15)

AM - 5 Parkway.  Just 5 this morning.  I decided that when I get home later from meetings (like seems to be the usual on Tuesdays now) that I'll reward myself with about 20 extra minutes of sleep.  Doesn't seem like much, but it helped me get up and get going this morning.  Shin... slowly improving.  (Oregon 190.5)

afternoon - 10 Green Springs.  Went up to GS with the team and then added some stuff somewhere while wearing some shoes(?).  Too tough to remember when it has been almost a week.  So one pair of shoes' count will be off.

pm - 9.25 Flagstaff.  Lazy this morning and didn't get up.  I have been using my shin as an excuse to chill in the morning and sleep in, and then add in today's long drive and there was enough excuses right there.  So after getting to Flagstaff, I went out and had a great run along Route 66.  Averaged around 6:20 pace for the run and just zoomed it.  (Ohana racers 614)

AM - 6.5 Flagstaff.  Got a few miles in before the team hit a little shake-out run in the morning.  Then off to Phoenix.  (Rocket 186)

afternoon - 6.5 Phoenix.  Ran the Nike Southwest Regional course at Toka Sticks a couple times.  Excited to see how the team does.  (Ohana Racers 620.5)

morning - 10 Phoenix.  Found a canal trail just past the hotel that was way better to run on than the city streets.  Slow and tired on the way out.  Then on the way back, pushed it to Tinman pace and the time just flew.  (Rocket 178)

Week was okay.  I need to get on top of my mornings better though.

Goals for next week:  Enjoy the family time; enjoy running; eat, drink and be merry.
