AM - 6 AC/Lutheran. Coldest morning this season - below freezing. Stomach still not quite right. (Kinvara3 124)

afternoon - 13.5 4x1000/Shoe. DI warm and cool around 4x1000 with the girls - they lit them up. Then I went out on the Shoe run. Nice little addition. And some more with the girls and dog. (Zero 114.25). Jumped into the weight room for the first time in a long time. Trying a little something different there that the team will be using when we get back into weights - higher weights, less reps, quicker - more powerful building, based on the theory that we already develop long lean muscle and the weight room is for more explosive strength.

AM - 10 AC/Trail to Nowhere. After the team run, I added extra with a push trying to get around Tinman pace. I was off just a little, but no stress. Just happy that I am beginning to get a little quicker stuff in again. (Hyper Speed 280.25)

afternoon - 11.5 Grass/Middleton. Sneaked onto the grass for the first time maybe all year and got 5 in barefoot. Then went into Middleton for practice. Finished up with 8xbarefoot striders. Good batch of running today. (Barefoot '12 95.5)(F50 343)

AM - 11 Clyde's.  Ran a bit before and then the loop with the Circle.  Feeling good, cold, but good.  (Connect 367.25)

afternoon - 5.5 Washington.  Ran into Washington on an out and back.  Good convo with Mikey about the game plan for this weekend.  Wondered if maybe Byron and Casey would also make the Championship race - and they did.  So good for them.  Skipped out quick so I could spend a little family time since I'll be gone the rest of the week.  We went to dinner before heading over to Pyper's choir performance; she is a cutie!  (Last Ohana 355.5)

AM - 6 AC/Lutheran.  Usual.  Got as much sleep as I could for today's drive to Flagstaff and then got the regular run in.  I can tell the legs are a little tired from the higher mileage this week, but not dead.  Miles will come down a bit for the rest of the week now.  (Oregon 480)

PM - 4 Flagstaff.  Little shake-out run with the team once we got to our hotel.  (Zero 119.25)

AM - 12 Flagstaff.  Another great run in Flagstaff.  The temps were amazing and running was just very nice.  Came back after 8 and got the team and we went up this cool dirt road.  Good day for running.  (Kinvara3 136)

afternoon - 3 Toka Sticks.  Ran the course (Nike Southwest) down in Phoenix.  I sure love XC.  Maybe someday I'll run the citizens race, but I am always hesitant since I am here for the team.  (Zero 122.25)

AM - 8 Phoenix.  Just an out and back in Chandler from the hotel.  Needed to get up pretty early and I wasn't about to drag myself up any earlier than I already had.  (Kinvara3 132)

Week was pretty solid.  Glad I got the higher mileage earlier in the week so that the weekend wasn't too stressful with the trip.  Kids ran great and it was a fun trip down to Phoenix.

Goals for next week:  Have another solid mileage week, hopefully around 90.  And get a bit of tempo in again to start working into that more in the next few weeks.
