2 mile wu. Moderate (7:21 ap) for 16. Took Luca and should have left her home- can't find a good rhythm with her...

Warm afternoon- took the little 6oz handheld and went through two bottles and one gu. Needed more fuel.

2 mile wu. 4 x 6 min at 10k-10sec (6:25) 3 min recovery jog between. Last 2 miles at MP (7:05) Felt good- low energy before I left and started to feel the energy gap in the last 2 miles.

3 mile wu. 5 x 1 mile at 5k pace/effort 3 min recovery on cc course. Killer workout. Legs felt strong, but each repeat was tough... that course is freaking hard... splits were 6:40, 6:38, 6:38, 6:48, 6:47...obviously not 5k pace, but they were 5k effort.

3 mile wu. 5.4 mile tempo at HMP (6:40) all splits +-2 seconds from 6:40. Slept horribly last night and woke up with a sore throat. Treating it with cough drops and tea/hot water.  Didn't feel 100% running, but decided to do the workout anyway. We'll see if that was a good idea or not tomorrow.

Need to stay healthy for the big 0-6 birthday party this weekend!!

 

Did a new Nike Training Center ab workout last night and one of the moves may have made my lower back tight. The bridge/back bend during my mini-yoga session (also NTC) could also be the culprit... I should know better than to do a back bend... not the bendy 10-yr old I use to be :)

2.5 with Luca

Easy ten. Took a while for my blood pressure to catch up so I was light headed for the first 2 miles- I hate taking mediciation.... probably why I never do it....

Almost bite by a dog. Some lady was walking her 9 dogs and a few of them came running over (no biggi) and she shouts "They are friendly"  All were friendly but one who snarled and lunged at me for a few minutes while the lady blew her whistle (and he did not respond to). I had to stand still and yell and try to get him to back off while he was about 6 inches away from taking a chunk out of my rear.

2 mile wu. 3 x 2 miles at 10k pace, 2 min off. Originally wanted to shoot for 6:30s, but still not  100% and either being sick or meds made my legs achy so I did 6:35s instead.  splits: 6:37, 6:34, 6:37, 6:36, 6:30, 6:36

First couple of miles I am still a little light headed and then it goes away. Other than the tight/achy legs I felt really comfortable and strong. Should be ready for Scout Mt next weekend.
