Morning run, perfect, temp 53'

I decided to do a 3 mile tempo run and not try 8 quarter repeats just in case I'd wimp out and only do 6.  Plus I've been doing a couple of fast quarters almost every day which is helping my need for speed.  The 1st two miles are slightly down and the last mile gets you back to the start and gains back all the down hill.  I did the miles as follows ( 5:56, 5:52, 6:08 - Mile avg. - 5:59).  Hopefully coach Tom will think that I redeemed myself  after last weeks 6 of 8, especially after yesterdays 13 miles of medium pace running.

Distance 7.0,  Time 47:40,  Mile avg. - 6:49


Noon run, nice, temp 75'

I ran easy due to this mornings hard run.

Distance 5.4,  Time 44:20,  Mile avg. - 8:13

You've redeemed yourself Terry. This is a smokin fast 3-mile tempo, I wish I could pull off a run like this, lately I feel like I'm getting slower but I suppose it's just the cycle of things. Glad to see you'll be in top-notch form for WBR.

Kind of eerie Terry that we are perfectly tracking each others mileage this week. But I think you're winning in the 'quality' miles department. I'm planning on around 70 miles for the week so perhaps I'll win the 'quantity'.

From Terry on Tue, Jun 03, 2008 at 12:45:34

I've never run 70 miles in a week my whole life. Your amazing Tom. I may have done it this spring if my foot didn't get me. I'll give you the quantity this week.

BTW, tempo runs hurt. On mile 3 I always wonder why I'm inflicting pain on myself.

Wow Terry! What's with all of these 2-a-days lately, is this to prepare for the WBR?

Looks like you'll break thru with 75+ miles this week.

From Terry on Tue, Jun 03, 2008 at 22:42:04

I've run extra this week to prepare for WBR but also because I'm feeling good this week. My body seems to want to go. It doesn't happen very often so when the stars align I try to keep running until I don't feel that way anymore.
