Got up and did 5 miles, first day of official indoor season. It was pretty mucky but I layered so much I felt hot and uncomfortable. 

 

In the afternoon I did 4 more miles, it was snowy but not too bad and calmed down halfway through. Actually felt pretty good and enjoyed it.

Good long run to end a rest week and get back into the doubles, trying to ward off tiredness. Tried to do an out and back long run but ended up going into a few different towns. Plantar hurts in the middle of the run but after a stretch it stopped. Solid quality run.

4 easy in the AM. 

 

PM, half mile warmup, then fartlek intro for new people, around 8:30 of fartlek, going randomly in easy, steady, upbeat. Then rest before intervals

 

Workout 2 x 500-300-200, 3 min rest between with jogging. 

Did some legs like deadlift and paralell squat after. 

Set 1 

500: Felt good, first rep is easier, body warming up, fast first 100, settle 300, fast 100, might've elbowed Jay.

300: Sprint, hit a 41 something, so 27 something en route. 

200: 28 second, slower than the 300 lol. 

5 min rest 

Set 2

500: hurt more, elbowed to get next to Andrew, oops. 

300: Anarobic hurt, form felt bad. 

200: Ow, we started early to get it done, gutted it out and finished strong. 

Half mile cooldown then plyo crap.

Went to bed at 9 something because that interval workout tired me out, got up at 5:30 something to pee then alarm at 6:00 to get up, late start out the door by 6:31. 4 miles and my lower right calf was sore with some minor plantar. 

 

We did 35 easy/a lil over four miles. Went out pretty slow but got to a 7:45 average, with the later miles being faster since we picked it up. Good day of running overall. Then a lift later.

Nasal drip/sore throat so I slept in instead of doubling. 

 

Workout was 10 easy 5 tempo then 300-150-300-150 but abreviated to 5 easy instead of 10 because snow. 

2.4 easy

.9 of tempo 

.6 of intervals 

Sprints were bad because I had no traction kept slipping but good effort, third each rep though I was dropping everyone except my boyz up front.

Shake out run at the track then a warmup 3 hours later, anchor leg for first time ever so when I got the baton in first didn't know what to do, panicked and slowed down and let myself get caught, came third in our heat and 13th overall, If I went with the guy who picked me off I would've got the time I wanted. Cooled down a while and pretty ashamed of that race, just a rust buster.

Warmed up and shook the legs out, then I warmed up for real later, went right to the front after the gun, ran like someone was chasing me, such a gap behind me. Pr and got 6th overall.

Ran down to track then warmed up with Mike. Went out and did an easy run with 10 steady, watch was acting weird saying it was 7:00 pace but 7:30s are near my easy, didn't connect to GPS lol. 

Guesstimate around 6:00 pace since it was more laid back than the usual sub 6 and not too taxing. 

Then caught up to Mike after and ran back, did abs. Good run.

13.05 long run in 1:48 or something near that, didn't wear a watch so I can only guess and take strava's word for the run's distance. Might be longer than the site said to be honest. Had to stop at some cross walks durring the run so the pace might be a few minutes slower than it should be.

 

Happy with the run and I felt pretty strong but tried at some points, got to recover now for tomorrow's workout.

Took it real easy today. Felt a little beat up so I needed it more than the steady work today. Last run of the year
