February 15th-21st Training

Monday: 6 miles (7:17); 8.4 miles (7:06)

Tuesday: 10.6 miles (6:44); Skipped second run. It was parent-conference night and I didn't get home until 7:30pm.  I had intentions to run but it was a long day, with an early next morning and I had two kids who wanted to play as soon as I got home.

Wednesday: 8.8 miles (7:34).  Was going to run a workout but my legs were feeling really flat;  6.1 miles (7:18)

Thursday: 7.8 miles with 2xbaby ups and downs.
Ran much faster than two weeks ago with ups of 1:30 and 1:28 and downs of 1:18 and 1:19.  I was hoping for six, but time was short.  My motor is still bad but getting better each week.  The last downhill really hurt.; 6.3 miles (7:37). Legs were absolutely shot. Probably one of the top 5 worst runs, ever.

Friday: 8 miles (7:02); 6 miles (7:20)

Saturday: 8.3 miles (7:14); 3.6 miles with 8x100mish strides on the road with jogback recovery (7:14)

Sunday: 15 miles with Dry Creek Half-Marathon in 1:18:01. Absolutely beat the crap out of me.  The course was about half jeep roads and half trails.  I'll need to write a more extensive recap but I had a 1:59 lead at four miles and only won by a little over 20 seconds.  I was trashed the rest of the day.

Week Total: 94.9 miles. Was shooting for around 100 miles but I was getting worn out by the end of the week.  I planned a cooldown after the trail race and a short evening run but my legs were shot and wanted no part of it.  Why do it today when you can next week?
