Mon - 5m (34:20) Nice recovery day from yesterday's long run. Was 40 and raining out, legs were a bit sore from running the trails yesterday.
Tues - 7m track workout (2xmile 4x200) this workout went ok. Nothing to special, aside from it being cold and dark when I got to the track I still don't feel smooth when I try to run fast. Splits : 5:34/5:30/35/35/34/35..not sure what its gonna take for these to turn around. Maybe I'll see something this weekend at the first BU meet.
Wed - 7m (46:28) had to work later today to cover for some people that are in training. Also had to be in Albany for 730 to pick up Eric. Felt good on the run it was pretty nice out.
Thurs - 6+ (39:42) Got out just after 6 for a easy run. Felt pretty good, we almost got hit by a older driver they decided to try and pass then turn in front of us. Led to a bit of confusion.
Fri - 3m (21:16) short shakeout before the mini tomorrow. Headed to the mill afterwards for a Christmas party with some friends from work.
Sat - 7m (BU Mini Meet) Wow did this one hurt, its been about a year since I have been on the track and I could feel it. Mad a tone of mistakes in the mile (at one point in lane 3 on a turn trying to pass) legs didn't really respond to well and it showed in the results. Came back later in the 800 and just treated it as a workout to my surprise I felt a lot smoother and didn't die, although it wasn't anything to write home about it's a starting point and looking forward to the next race. Results 4:55(2:22,2:33) Woof / 2:17 (69high,67.)
Sun - 15m (1:41:17) Out and back 52:33 out 48:43 back on the bike path with the willow guys. Two weeks ago we ran with the group and I got crushed on the way back when everyone decided to drop the hammer on the way home. Today I was ready for it and sat back most of the run until we had about 20mins to go. Surprisingly enough there was no surge by the pack, other then myself and Eric picking it up a bit over the final mile to close out the run. Felt really smooth the last couple miles, kinda surprising what one track race and a shock to the system can do for your runs.
Total - 50m with 2 ok races for the time frame.
