Time is the Enemy

Music, kids and work seem to be taking up whatever time I have outside of running, but I've been doing a fair amount of the latter.

3/10, 10 miles, 1h15m, 7:25 pace, lots of hills and trails w/Lucas and Jason
3/11 am., 12 miles, 1h22m, 6:53 pace, felt good
3/11 pm., 5 miles, 39m, 7:54 pace, (yeah I'm doing these evening runs slow now)
3/12 am., 12 miles, 1h24m, 7:02 pace w/10x100 accelerations/300 jog, plus 1x800 fast downhill and 1 mile towards the end at 5:55 pace
3/12 pm., 6.2 miles with the gang in 43m
3/13 am., 12 miles, 1h23m, 6:59 pace, felt surprisingly good
3/13 pm., 6 miles, 45m, 7:35 pace
3/14 am., 12 miles, 1h27m, 7:16 pace, lots of hills/trails, felt surprisingly bad

I'm trying to avoid the "wound up state" mentioned in Mystery Coach's post below, and going even easier than usual during these evening runs will hopefully help. It's been a good week so far, though I'm guessing the fatigue I felt this morning can be attributed to doing three doubles in a row tis week, which hasn't happened in awhile.

More soon.

Looks like a good week so far Mike. I hope your weekend goes well, with a "surprisingly good" description for the long run.

Goodness me, someone has slowed down! Looks like the Mystery Coach managed to drive a message home.

Nothing like a longish run in the evening to wind down.

I don't know where the time has gone either - feel like the days are getting shorter and the to do list is getting longer. You are not alone!

Good week so far, you are doing great.
