Morning run, temp 55'

After two days of rest I felt pretty good.  I ran a couple of quarters in 73 avg.  I saw two kids running and came up behind them.  I asked them what they were doing running at this time in the morning.  They were 9th graders getting ready for cross country season.  I talked with them for a minute and then left them in the dust.  It always feels good to smoke the younger generation.

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.

Noon run, mostly cloudy, temp. 63'

Since I didn't run yesterday I thought I'd be feeling good.  Instead there was no zip, no zing, I just felt like an old man.  This is closing week were I work more and have to actually think at my job and my brain gets to tired to send the signals to run hard.  Anyway I decide to to a couple of fast quarters.  The 1st one was uphill and I went very hard and got 80 seconds, the 2nd was 3/4 mile later and was down hill and I got a disappointing 75 seconds.  I couldn't get myself to run.  The next gear was gone.  I old maned it a few more miles got a run in.

Morning run, light rain, temp 49'

My throat has been a little sore the last few days.  I keep thinking a cold is coming on but it hasn't happened yet.  Had an enjoyable run despite the rain.  I ran around the new daybreak homes and lake.

I ran more miles this week than I have for several months.  Watch out WBR here I come.
