Speedwork

It's 103 outside this afternoon and I ran my first day of speed work. 6 X 1 minute sprints with a 1.5 minute cool down. Not too bad but the cool down's turned into walks toward the end. I have two weeks until my 5k and I hope to have enough speed and core work for at least a 23 minute race.

A heavy 8

A slow 8 miles this morning on the north section of the greenbelt. Not bad considering I was outside all day in the heat yesterday. My legs felt heavy this morning but didn't really give up till the last quarter of a mile. Looks like this coming week may be the end to these high temps. We'll see.

8 miles


Not a bad run this morning at the greenbelt. Met up with a guy on the trail training for his first Marathon. We ended up running the last couple miles together and running it much faster than I thought my last couple miles were gonna be like. None the less I kept up and enjoyed putting in today's 8 miles. After our run Kelley and I sat on the patio drinking bloody mary's and watching our son mow. Life is good.

The Hottest Half

Ran the Hottest Half this morning. Woke up at around ten till 5 and was out the door by 0550. Couple hard boiled eggs with some added salt. Pretty tired lining up for the start. Had a pretty rough weekend, thank you Kim and gang. Anyway, the plan was to walk a minute after each mile. That worked great until mile 6 when I decided to reward myself with a two minute walk. After that it was grueling just to keep a good pace. Miles ten through thirteen proved to be the toughest. My lungs were really feeling odd. Hard to explain but as I took deep breaths they felt light. Anyway in did start to cramp up and as I was trying to cross the finish line both calfskin really cramped up. Ended up walking, or limping the last ten yards or so. Woohoo, it's over.

8 miles

Kelley and I got out for an eight mile greenbelt run. I walked a minute in between each mile and pulled it off in this mid 80's heat.
