AM - 6 easy.

PM - Jogged for about ten minutes, laced up in the spikes and did a couple hard strides coming through the 100m in mid 13's. Wanted to jog a lot more and do more strides, but I could tell it would rain soon so I started the strides early, which didn't matter because it started pouring during my second one. Felt good on the strides nonetheless. Saw Rylie and her mom walking in the rain and gave them a ride back to their car after.

AM - 4 miles. Felt good since I didn't have to work last night, so I could actually rest up a bit. Did a pickup for 2 minutes or so, nothing hard, just trying to get near tempo pace for the 7-mile tempo run tomorrow(I type with fear in my heart). Went 5:20 pace for the pickup which is too quick, I'd like to start out around 6:10 pace and keep picking it up. Felt easy though!

PM - 5 with a couple strides. Would have done more but I might try to do my tempo in the morning.

AM - was originally supposed to do a tempo run this morning, but about an hour and a half out my stomach started hurting from not eating recently so I had some rice. That didn't sit well so I decided to do mile repeats at the park instead so I had a bathroom if things went south. I did 4 mile repeats in 5:26, 5:25, 5:08, 4:54. It was hard because the first third of it you were on the grass but you were fresh, the next third was on concrete so more responsive, but the last third you jump back on the grass and it slows you down. Really dug deep on that last one, it hurt. I had to start it twice because the first time my watch didn't start which stinks because I felt way better on that one for the 40 seconds I was actually running it. The others weren't too bad though, just a good effort all around. Didn't even take my shirt off so how hard could I have been going? All of these were faster than my paces on my 1000,800,600 last week so I'm getting fitter. Long cooldown + stretching, core and lifting after. Squatted 100lbs which is way more than I've ever done before(I'm just starting to understand how important strength is).

PM - 4 miles easy. Very slow. Forgot to mention I pet a horse on my cooldown, so an A+ cooldown.

AM - 5 miles ending with 4x200m trying to hit 36, 35, 34, 33 to shake out the tiredness and such from the legs. Actually hit 35, 31, then decided to try for 36 and 34, which I did. Overall they all felt pretty easy. The 34 I held for about another 50m after stopping the watch just because it felt good to stride out.

PM - 5.

AM - 6 easy with strides, uneventful as always at 2AM.

This job is rough. If anyone likes hearing me complain about my job I'll be reading some scat poetry I wrote in angst Saturday night at "The Black Cat"

Fun workout with Kenny, I wish I hadn't worked all night prior to it so I would have felt better but we all endure trials of various measure. 5x600m and 5x200m. My good watch died and bad one didn't work so I just would start counting until Kenny finished and subtract the time. Because of the watch I took the 600's a little easier, I would sit on Kenny until different points(from 40m out to 400m out) and then shift gears and drop him(sorry Kenny). The times I got where 1:47-1:52 so not too bad, it wasn't hard besides being tired and having a dry throat. No matter where I kicked, it always seemed like I finished 50m ahead, except when I kicked with 40m left, but that was a pretty monstrous gear change. 200's were good, only timed the 5th, and by timed I mean waited for the watch to get to xx:xx:00 and run it, and I came in on xx:xx:28 on that one. Lifted after which was good, except that it's 12:30 now and I normally wake up at 7PM. Man this sucks. Thanks for tagging along Kenny!

hit a new record for consecutive sleeping time, just shy of 14 hours, thanks work. While sleeping was nice I woke up at 9PM so getting a run in wasn't possible. I'm counting some AM work mileage.
