AM-Easy distance day of 10 miles. Going to start a buildup now that I have had some easier weeks to recoup from racing. 10 miles easy. No time.
PM-Another 10 miles easy out to South Mountain and back while listening to some vintage New Order/ Joy Division. What can I say I'm a child of the 80's!  6:45/7min/mi. Stretching afterwords. Boy that chiro did me a lot of good. He is a good aquaintance of  Paul and Jame's chiropractor. I can actually touch my toes now.

AM-LT run this morning up to Draper trail point and back via State St. First warmup mi was a little quick coming in at 7:01. Started my watch for 3x11 minutes with 2 min slow recovery at 7-7:30/mi. Mainly effort based. Last mile downhill 114th in 5:13/mi pace. Short cooldown because of time restrictions.

PM-6 miles easy 7-7:30/mi. with 8min mile warmup. Neighborhood loop. Getting raw out here tonight.

AM-Aerobic resistance ten miler this morning down to the trail and around the bridge. I had a rather sobering observation this morning. I was looking at a Japanese website of the Chiba International Eikeden half-marathon and if you think you are really good, take a look at this race beacause it has a way of bringing you back down to reality. A 1:10 half pr might get you 400th place. And a 1:08, mmm, maybe 300th if you have room and enough gas to have any sort of kick at the end. The Japanese do not fool around when it comes to racing, hundreds of guys running at 5/min/mi pace or so in this race. The training and organization of clubs, camps, coaches and especially runners blows me away. I can't help but wonder what the United States could produce with a system like that. It really made me standback for a minute and a rather long one at that. Makes ya kind of wonder what it is really possible. / 10 miles total/ 6-6:41/mi avg. pace. /

PM-Easy 5 miles at 6:45-7:04. 7:30/mi. warmup. 7th east rolling loop course. Had to edit the early morning entry for errors. I need to go back to school and learn how to write properly!

AM- Slept in today because I was so tired from waking up so often. Babies don't know how to tell time and have voracious appetites you know.. But I still managed to get 4 miles in before Thanksgiving dinner. Since my wife just had a baby my Dad and Mom took the whole family to Little America this year which was absolutely decadent but so good. yummm...  King Crab, Turkey and all the trimmings topped off with freshly dipped chocolate strawberries for dessert. Thanks Dad, that was great.

PM- Waited 6 hrs to digest the feast I took in today and started a very slow jog which gradually wound into a nice run. Finished at a pretty good clip. Last mile in 6:42/mi. Total time-6 miles in 45:06.

AM-Good workout today with 12 miles total overall. 3 mile aerobic resistance. 6-6:32/mi going up to the course. Ran 4x1mile in 5:13, 5:13, 5:10, 4:57. Last mile was tough but definitely doable. Fun too! All with a 1 min rest interval. Draper Park road mile. 1% down then back 1% up for half mile approximately. turned for home after a minute easy and slowly wound back up to MP speed. 5:48-5:17/mi pace back down to home. 1:19 last quarter at 154 bpm. Things are starting to feel sharp, but it is unfortunately time to phase out the hard workouts and concentrate on base building again.

PM-8 miles very easy on the treadmill at 7-8min/mi. at 1% incline. 59 :37 total time. 7/min mi at 118-124 bpm THR. 65-70% MHR.
