Went out and ran with Michelle and the SF group.  Temps not to bad but we had a light snow the whole time, which made for slick roads.  We ran along most of the SF half marathon course.  Had a great run and good conversation.

2:07:57/8:15

20 mins of stretching (even know I don't log it daily I usually do about 20 mins if daily stretching)

I think I will take that recovery week this week.  My legs feel worn down after last week so I will cut the mileage back to aroung 45 with alittle bit of crosstraining.  Then I will jump back inot the 50's and build from there.  Usually I can't wait for recovery week but for some reason I am having a hard time thinking about taking one, my mind just wants to keep on trucken.  But I know if I don't I will pay for it.

Recovery week!!!!!!

 

Surprise-surprise icey, slushy, snowy roads.  I think the snow removal people are sick of removing snow because the roads and sidewalk that are usually not bad to run on were awful.  My pace was so slow.    I am so tired of running on icey roads.  I am tired only got 5.5 hours of sleep last night.

30 mins of stretching

This workout was an atempt at getting my VO2 max better.  Started with a 2 mile warmup and then did 1-800, 2-600, and 6-400 all at or around 5k pace or what I would like my 5k pace to be:)   Did this on the treadmill.

400-1:35 (2:16)

Then I cooled down  total time 1:02:16

Swam 6 laps and sat in the hot tub.

Woke up this morning with a bad sore throat, and not feeling well.  I decided to still go meet Cheryl for the run.  I didn't know she was planning on meeting another friend and go up on the trails.  We went and did the stairway.  The trail was plowed to we just had a light layer of snow on the trail and it was coming down as well.  Now I love runninag this kind of stuff but I didn't feel well and the snow was coming down hard and was afraid of turning my ankle because you could see the trail or anything for that matter.  Well the run went ok until the very end and I was being so careful the whole way.  I went around the gate right at the end and I was so proud of myself for not spaining my ankle.  I start to run again (this is about 30 yards from my car) and I turned my ankle.  Oh I was so mad grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.  It's not as bad as I did it in the fall but it makes me so mad because I love running on the trails but I always twist my anlke.  I should just stay away from them but they call to me.  I guess I will be staying off of them for a while.  No watch.

So I decided to take my own advice and take the day off.  I have a little twinge that has been coming and going the last couple of weeks in my left adductor.  I have been keeping at bay with alot of scrapping.  But thought how silly I would be telling everyone else to listen to their bodies and I didn't heed my own warnings.   Man it is easy to dish it but hard to do it.  I will probably get on my bike latter but no pressure.

35 mins on the bike

Went out and ran in SF with Michelle and MacK,  we dropped off MacK but picked up another freind in the middle of the run.  I felt alot better than I thought I would, I didn't even want to go out for a run but I am glad I did.  It was freezing cold through the middle.  SF has these cold pockets I bet it was below 10 degrees in them.  But as soon as the sun popped out it warmed up some.  Did the SF half course with some more added on.

2:15:15/7:57 not bad for just wanting easy miles.

OK so I felt pretty dead legged the whole race.  Which by the way is one of the mose boring races I have ever run.  James was nice enough to pace me for the race.  Did a 3 mile warm up with the boys.  I think I was so tired for a couple of reasons one being the increase of milage, two the strides on thurs. and last is it is right before that monthly visitor:(   Quads felt like they were not working.  I'm not to pleased with my time I would have and think I am capable of running at this point a 1:03 but oh well.

OK so I thought about my racing this year as well as yesterdays race and I realized I am racing faster (minus college) than I ever have at this point in the season.  So even know I didn't have the best race, it still makes me excited for the year to come.

Goals for the week- crack into the 60's but do more easier, slower paced runs.  WT, stretching, swim.

My back is giving me some grief latley so I didn't get up and run this morning.  We will see how it does today.  My left adductor is alittle tight after yesterday, I scraped it last night and it does feel better.  But the all the running has wiped me out.

My back loosened up so I went out for an easy run.  Both leg and back felt fine.  Legs didn't feel to bad after yesterdays run.
