Weekly Summary: Apr 04 - Apr 10

WEEKLY SUMMARY: Apr 04 - Apr 10

Mon-PM:  5.1 miles (36:40) Baseball Pratice to Home, 285'
It was like 70 degrees or so out, so not used to running in this weather after the cold winter.  Don't know if it was the weather or the tired legs from the weekend that made me feel horrible for this run.  That is the reason for the shorter distance.

Tues-PM:  10.9 miles (1:20) Betzwood Loop + extra loop, 421'
Ran with Mike Tantino.  He has been out for a long time.  Pace was a little faster than I tend to like on my easy days, but got into groove after a little bit.

Wed-PM:  0 miles (X:XX)  Did not run.
 Evan had baseball practive at 5pm..then went to Iron Hill for dinner.

Thurs-PM:  13.1 miles (1:39)  Tantino loop than modified DML, 1256'
Ran with Mike T. for about 5.5 miles, then added on a loop of Joy and Misery alone.  Ran harder up the hills.

Friday-AM:  11 miles (1:27) Betzwood from Oaks, 284'
Ran with Jason starting at 5:00am.  Early morning run, but felt pretty good on it.  Could have went for more.
Saturday-AM:  15 miles (1:49) GVHS, 1253'
Met Matt at GVHS for a workout at 7am.  Ran a 5 miles warm-up in 39 minutes easy.  Then 4 x 10 minute tempo with 3 minute jog between.  The tempos were at 6min/mile over rolling hills.  Effort was definitely harder than the 6min/mile.  Finished it up with a 2.6 mil "cooldown" back to cars.  The cooldown was up Yellow Springs which is a longuphill followed by steep down.

Sunday-AM:  26.2 miles (4:00) French Creek/Horseshow Trail, 2447'
Met with Matt and Jason at Scott's Run Lake parking at 6am.  Headed out on trail before sunrise.  Very slow going considering the technicality of the trails.  Ran out to Warwick Park.  This will be the last 13+ miles of the proposed Horseshoe Trail race.  On way back, ran faster.  Legs tired, but was able to push harder the last 4 miles on very technical trail.

Mileage = 81
Vertical = 6000'
Days off = 1

This was my "off" week.  Took it a bit easier with mileage and vertical this week.  Not bad for an off week being 80 miles.  Decided that I probably will run Boston on the 18th.  Probably won't run very hard.  Will just try to keep pace for a 2:45-2:50.  Don't want to tire the legs to much or ruin my mental racing mind for Ice Age.  Will be an interesting run.  Going to drive up on Sunday and camp in Highlander somewhere.  I will have to see what Lee's goal is.  Maybe I can run with him.  I have a feeling the road is going to take something out of my legs post-race week.  Anyway, should be fun!
