pm--10.50 A slow burner/slow builder on the tready no less. Sad to say, but when it takes me longer to get running, the tready creeps in. I'm glad to get a run in like this though. 7ish years ago, when this all started, I really started to get stronger and faster w/ the 90+ minute runs every week. It's time to start bringing those back. Throw in a fartlek, some striders, and a few tempoish miles every week, and I'll be coming back as strong as ever.

pm--5.5 Truncated morning route in the evening. I've had a good week--a longer run, a few mids, and some leg-speed work. Let this be the start of a real groove.

pm--8 XC meeting this evening. That got me pumped, so I went for a nice 8-miler w/ my neighbor. Some Boyz in da Hood signed up for the marathon this year. I guess I'll have some running buddies throughout the summer.

am--10 A run from the cabin up the Pinto road to Grass Valley. There is about 500' of elevation gain in 2 miles to the turn-around. It's hard when you top out @ 7,000'. Nice, hard run. 15.5 miles above 6,500'. 8:34 pace.

pm--3 The last 2 weeks, I've had a day that I missed a run for whatever reason. Today nearly became that day this week. But I got my over-engorged belly going for a short run.

pm--8 A nice bunny loop run around the Canyons. Felt smooth and relaxed. The only complaint is that the tomtom watch shows a quick pace on the wrist but lags on the average pace of the whole run. I'm not sure why.

pm--5.5 Lazy day. I finally got a nice progression run in. Frankly, most of my runs should be progression runs. That would slowly bump up my average pace and help stouter paces feel easier. I finished w/ ~ 8 min. of bounding stairs.

pm--6 Fartlek (3 min., 3 min., 4 min., and 5 min. @ ~7:00 min. pace w/ 2 min. recovery jog) w/ some decent running. Towards the end, I felt some tightness in the right hamstring. We'll see how that goes.

am--6 Pine Valley. I ran part of the Cemetary Trail. It had a good initial climb and soft single-track most of the way. Supposedly, this trail connects to the Gardner Peak Trail. I'll explore that trail someday.

am--12 Down the course. Lame I know, but everyone I know was doing it. Went running w/ the in-laws and a neighbor. I dropped everyone off on the way to 12. My goal was to catch everyone. Some had hopped out at 8 and my neighbor at 10. Well it took me nearly 11 miles to catch them, but I did. I never pushed into the uncomfortable zone, but by the end, I had to work to hold pace. Overall 7:42 per mile pace. It's close to a T-man pace for me. I'm actually happy with today's run. Some good aerobic miles w/ 90+ minutes of running. We ate at the Egg & I after.
