AM - 11 Mall/AC/Lutheran. Got up to get the miles in this morning. Want a decent week, but don't know what the weekend will hold. Felt great for about 6 or so and then the legs got heavy and spent. (Kinvara3 508.5)

afternoon - 3xDirt Mile. Ran the Parkway for a warm and threw in the last 1.5 of that at Tinman. My garmin was giving problems, so I ran with Ally's Nike (I don't have a clue how to use it - the mileage was off as well as the paces and I think it is junk, but at least it timed me). Onto the miles. Wanted LT pace and was thinking with the recent weeks of XC miles around high teens-20's with the team, I could be around the same on the dirt. The course was in horrid condition and needs some work, but I had a good workout. Got 5:07, :09, :08. I was pretty happy about the effort and now I probably won't be able to walk for the rest of the week, but to get to my St. George 1/2 goal I've got to hit this type of effort/pace and keep throwing more intervals in. Finished with a cool home and a mile with Laney. (Hyper speed 421.5)

AM - 6 AC/Lutheran.  Just a nice easy run.  Being so wiped out from yesterday's runs made it so I had a good nights sleep for the first time in awhile and woke up refreshed and ready for the day.  It was nice.  (Connect 660.25)

afternoon - 6 laps/2xAC.  Just ran around a bit to try and get some mileage in since the team had there 1600 meter time trial.  (Free 852.2)

AM - 11 Mall/AC/Lutheran.  Not a bad run.  Temps were a bit warmer today with the clouds and rain around.  (Mana 537)

evening - 3 Kingman.  Raining and wet, but a nice chill run with the team down the streets of Kingman... what a town.  (Zero 277.25)

AM - 13 Kingman.  Got up and got a few more miles in the rain.  Wind was blowing pretty good.  I wouldn't say that I wish I lived in Kingman.  (Kinvara Lime 316)

afternoon - 3.5 Toka Sticks.  Ran the course with the team and a few striders.  Have had a good trip so far.  The course is going to be a mess tomorrow though.  (Zero 280.75)

AM - 5 Mesa.  What a crazy night.  Someone bust into my hotel room last night at about 1:30 - literally broke the door down!  It was very sureal and I am glad I was able to keep my wits about me and not get beaten or even killed... and I also very glad that it happened to me and not to any of the kids - I can't imagine how horrific that would have been to have to happen to a bunch of teenage girls (including my daughter who was there).  So after spending some time with the cops and then making sure all the kids were still in their rooms and okay, I didn't get much sleep and that which I did get was very restless.  So I got up and got a few miles in before we had to take off to the races.  (Zero 285.75)

Held in on the week pretty good.  Mileage wasn't bad for traveling and I had a good workout Monday, but couldn't get myself to do anything hard during the last part of the week.  Just tired from traveling and everything else.

Goals for next week:  Hopefully the same sort of week as this one (minus the near-death assault!).
