TUE. - 8mi. (roads) -- I kind of screwed this one up. A true, mapped out 8.1 miles but too much "uffda". My legs felt sluggish out of the gate so out of frustration/anger/pschosomatic BS I pushed it a little too hard for a regular base run. There are 3 fairly significant hills on this one and I struggled on them (and they slowed my pace way down). I think I need to get my head right. I did NOT lose fitness during my illness. I'm NOT still feeling the effects. I'm NOT crazy (just a drunk). Don't know if I'm pleased or upset because I let my emotions get the best of me. Hard days hard, easy days easy, right idiot???? Stupid. Easy day tomorrow. [57:34]
WED. - 4mi. (roads) -- super slow and easy in the slippery slush and snow. Looks like this guy is into training too....I've gotta get going planning out my summer. [31:34]
THU. - 11mi (trails & bike path) -- Soggy and muddy course was fun, but legs tired now. Warmed up with Galoob, Ben, Jonny and Gazelle from Tri-Pond park and ran most of the loop for what should be a fun race . 4 x 1 mile repeats at hoped for 6:30 pace: 6:27, 6:25, 6:32, 6:34. The numbers fail to reflect my effort. Good workout. [1:28:XX]
FRI. - 0mi-- no running but I did get out with Mason to ride a chilly but easy 4 miles in A-town...easy gears just spinning my legs. Good conversation. Realized I haven't even ridden a bike in over 2 years. Ha! Fittest Puddin' around.....
SAT. -16mi. (roads & trails) -- with Jonny, Gazelle, and Tom from Westerly into/around Barn Island Preserve. Really warm and damp...I sweat a lot!! Probably a tad short of 16 but we were consistently clipping off 7:15-7:25 pace. Good run. [1:56:00]
SUN. 5mi. (roads) -- my quads were still rather sore for this one but still enjoyed the run. As I passed back by homebase, I decided to stop after only five rather than go 3-4 more. My legs will thank me for it, I'm sure. [37:15]
TOTALS: 50 miles
