am--7.75 Zen to Moe's w/ Andy in some of my favorite shoes. (They are the envy of nearly every CrossFit dude.) The climbs had me beat today, but I still had something left as we finished. Getting fitter. Climbing on the trails would work wonders for me right now. RHR--52.

am--1.75 Weights and Harts+. Chilly morning but decent run. RHR--51. 

pm--6.25 Telegraph out-and-back. Coach laid it on the line--you don't race if you don't do all your runs. Most of the girls like the idea because they do what they're supposed to do. It's fun to have motivated workers on the team. 2k on the erg when I got home, listening to Belle and Sebastian.

pm—5 A run. Spring Break brought many great things, but running suffered. 

I did finish The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. It’s a dystopian novel that is getting some buzz because of its serialization on Hulu and our current political climate. Not sure if it’s timing or what, but I didn’t love the book. The heaviness of the story and the way it affected my mood subsequently left me cynical.

pm—5 Another run. I did take my runs a little easier this week. That’s a part of training that I’m still formulating, the development of pace throughout a training cycle and its effect on aerobic fitness and injury prevention.
