February 22nd-28th Training

Monday: 6.1 miles (7:16); 6.9 miles (7:07)

Tuesday: 9.4 miles (6:48)

Wednesday: 8.3 miles (7:14); 6.5 miles (7:16)

Thursday: 6.2 miles (7:39); 7.6 miles with 6400m tempo progression in 20:47.  I wanted to start at 5:20 and work down, depending on how I felt.  Spencer ran the first 1k of each mile with me and I ended up running: 5:16, 5:14, 5:11 and 5:06.  I was really rusty at first but the effort felt the same throughout, even though I sped up each mile. I'm definitely way out of shape, but I feel like I'm making gains every week.

Friday: 9.8 miles (6:51); 5.4 miles (7:09)

Saturday: 9.2 miles (6:46); 5.4 miles with a mile of in/outs (7:09)

Sunday: 20 miles (6:24). First real long run in a long time.  Felt a little worn out on the first loop, most likely because of the increased mileage. The second loop felt good and while it was a beautiful day for running, I was getting a little dehydrated by the end and felt pretty tired when I stopped.

Week Total: 100.1 miles. First 100 mile week since September.  That's a long time.  I have a showdown with Joseph Elsakr this weekend, which will be a showdown.  If Wild Bill is added to the mix, things could get crazy.
