5/10 Big Fat Zero, feeling sick (couldn’t eat night before, sore head and throat


5/9, 8 miles, around 7 minute pace, felt some fatigue

5/8, 10 miles, w/9x700 (500 recovery) in 2:07, 2:09, then 2:10(last 7). Legs started to go after 4, but came back very strong from 6 to 9. Comfortable 75-76 second 400’s, then a bit of effort for the last 300 towards the end. Good workout.

5/7 pm., 6.2 miles in 43m, weird allergy thing in throat, couldn’t get comfortable

4/27, 15 miles, 1h48m, 7:18 pace, nice and easy with Toby

4/26, 6 miles, 42m, 7:05 pace. Still feeling crappy but well enough to plod around for a few miles.

4/25, Big fat zero. Throat hurts, neck is sore and swollen.

4/24, 8 miles, 54m, 6:45 pace. Dumb error here. Since I was feeling sick w/swolled lymph nodes and a sore throat I tried to push through a tempo workout before I started feeling worse. As a result the stupid runner quit the tempo run after 3 miles at 5:52 pace.

4/23, 10 miles, 71m, 7:11 pace (starting to feel sick w/sore throat)

4/22 pm., 9 miles, 3 sets of 300x2 (100 recovery), 1000 (600) in 53, 55, 3:09, 55, 53, 3:11, 54, 55, 3:08, then a 600 in 1:50 (200), 400 in 72 (200), 200 in 30.

Total miles: 67 in 7 sessions



4/20, 12 miles, 1h22m, 6:53 pace. A little quick so I called it early to hopefully recover a bit from the race. Legs felt pretty good but right achilles was tight.

4/19, 6 miles w/5K Cross-Country Classic race, 17:08 (5:07, 5:29, 6:37 (1.1)), Went out too fast chasing the leaders and got too far over the redline the last mile.

4/18, 7 miles, 50m, 7:05 pace

4/17, 7 miles, 50m, 7:05 pace, w8x300 jog/100 accelerate-sprints plus 1x200 in 32. Very relaxed and light, tried not to get carried away.

4/16, 8 miles, 57m, 7:10 pace, pretty tired and a slow start

4/15 pm., 9 miles, 2x200 (200 recovery) in 35, 35, then 8x400 (400) in 73, 74, 73, 74, 70, 72, 72, 72, 1x200 in 30 (400), 1x600 in 1:45 (2 min.), 1x wobbly 200 in 35. The group made that last 200 a 400 and did one more 400, but I was cooked and didn’t want to run my race in the workout today (5K race is Saturday). Heavy legs at the start that actually lightened up as the workout progressed. Felt good about it.

4/15 am., 5 miles, 36m, 7:16 pace. Felt a little flat.

4/14, 10 miles, 1h13m, 7:17 pace, w/10x300 jog/100 accelerate-sprints

Total miles: 64 in 8 sessions



4/13 pm., 5 miles, 39m, 7:49 pace, see run below as this was the same deal. I was comfortable, but it’s hard not to be at nearly 8 minute mile pace.

4/13 am., 16 miles, 1h55m, 7:15 pace, started quite slow. Very windy, settled in but never felt great.

4/12, 7 miles, 5x1000 (400 recovery), 3:09, 3:11, 3:11, 3:11, 3:10, Focused on smooth running between 3:10-3:15 for each. Felt a little fatigue from Thursday, so an extra day of recovery might have helped. Trying to get more comfortable at 5:05- 5:10 pace.

4/11, 10 miles, 1h13m, 7:20 pace. Recovery. Started slow but felt good by the end.

4/10 pm., 9 miles, 12x400 (400 recovery) in 75, 76, 74, 75, 73, 72, 73, 72, 68, 67, 66, 34 (blew up during first 200 and called it). Played Catlow’s training hack and enjoyed it, felt light on my feet and strong through 10, struggled towards the end on 11.

4/8, 10 miles, 1h6m, 6:32 pace, Felt too good for two days after a 5K. Progressed down from 7 minute pace to 6:15 pace by the end. Think I need a bit more time at faster paces, as much anaerobic work as sharpening.

4/7, 10 miles, 1h13m, 7:11 pace, lots of trails and a few hills at an easy pace. Lack of soreness from the 5K is a puzzler.

Total miles: 95 in 10 sessions. Good week with more intense and longer quality, but a little fatigued on Sunday.



4/6, 7 miles, 5K Race for the Cure, 7th place, 16:23, 5:16, 5:18, 5:11, :36. Plan was to ease into it, but the slow opening mile was far from easy. The slow second split gave me a mental beating.
