Progressive 10 mile run after work with 4 miles of hard fartlek in the middle.  Gordon/Antelope east out and back with a 4 mile cool down towards Syracuse out and back.  Some definite improvement realized this week over a few months ago but I don't have good accurate splits to quantify it.  I just need to get to an indoor track for some kind of a time trial now.

AM-12.8 miles finishing with 6 miles of alternating hard to medium hard efforts running. Turning into that nasty headwind for about 2 miles really took it out of my sails at the end though.  Feeling really good again today but a lot of that has come from cutting back mileage of course.  Next hard workout hopefully (if time allows) will be 13-16 miles on Wens or Thurs with 6-8 at goal MP.

Gordon/Main/Antelope/Church St/SR-193 out and back.

PM-No run. Really tired this evening so I worked on an old project for an hour and after that called it a day.

PM- 4.2 miles with a pickup in pace on the last 2 miles at around 6:40-7/min/mi. Gordon ave/Main out and back.

PM-10.3 miles up Antelope/Fairfield out and back. Icy and dark so the pace was kept fairly sane tonight.

PM-No run tonight because I'm feeling a little too busy and sleep deprived lately.. I started school at DATC some time ago for some computer courses and have been working full time in addition to also training twice a day.  Going to modify things a bit and hopefully still be fit to race well in time for next year.

PM-Progression run for 6 miles total. Was not in the mood for more today any how. Between having two sons of my own in that age group and just the overall horror and grief of what happened today, it just did not happen. I can't seem to find words adequate enough to describe what I feel right now.

AM-Easy 8.6 miles.  1:02:33/SR-193 loop./ Backing off on mileage and intensity for a while until I can get a better idea on what is going to be a more realistic training load. 

PM-No run this evening. Went out to do shopping for the kid's X-mas. What a zoo..

AM-Easy 6 miles this morning. 2 8-7:30/mi and 4 at 6:40/mi. TM.

  Looked into the mirror very early this morning and discovered I was getting old and my hamstring / PF muscle only confirmed that for me this morning. It's also an interesting phenomena that as you get older the mind still thinks the body can just jump out of bed and go run 6:30 pace like it used to.  The body however performs otherwise and heads out like it's running on only 4 cylinders. A rather deflating experience at best this morning..

PM-Easy 4.5 miles at 6:40-7:30/mi.

AM-Easy recovery for 6 miles this morning. (44:06) Antelope/2200w.  It used to take me roughly 46 minutes and change to run this at roughly the same effort level and THR after a harder workout in early fall.  This is definitely encouraging for this time of year already.

AM-12.4 miles with cut down distance intervals of 5-4-3-2-1 with equal rest.  After completing the set a 1 mile jog and then 6x1 min hard with a 2:1 recovery/run ratio.  Timed one stretch on a distance known to be exactly .3 mi at 1:27. Overall a good solid capacity workout.  I'm probably going to feel the damage from this one in a day or two however..   Gordon/Hillfield rd /Church St/SR-193/Antelope Dr.
