am--8 Hurricane Rim Trail. I've never run this trail before, but today was a great day for. I had a blast, talking and talking and talking the whole time. Happy birthday to Jacey. RHR--53.

I also did some reading today and finished 2 books. The first is a classic--Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. I've read it once before but liked it even more the second time. It took  my mind to Huck Finn. Huck and Pip are very similar. Joe and Jim, as well. My AP Lit kids complained that it was long--it comes in at 497 pages--but it reads quickly. 

The second book I finished was The Team Captain's Leadership Manual by Jeff Janssen. The book outlines a 10-week plan to train team leaders. Once I got in the groove with the book, it flew by. Lots of great info that could be applicable in XC and the classroom. I want to put together outlines of each chapter. That's my next project.

am--1.5 Weights and Harts+. Perfect weather this morning. I felt decent lifting. RHR--50.

pm--5.5 Green Springs. I love this run. Some hate it. We kept the run pretty chill today. I was feeling antsy in the back. 

I finished a short book this morning--Together is Better by Simon Sinek. The book is basically a quote book with illustrations. I love this author. He has a great interview about millenials in the workplace and has written one of the best books I've read in the past year or so--Start with Why. The latter was very helpful as we put together a mission for PVXC.

am--2.5 Wells Fargo and back. Lovely morning weather again. Jacey taught us some self defense. RHR--52. 

pm--8.25 8k-pace work 2x(4x 400 and 1x 800) w/ 4x barefoot striders. Nice workout. The 400s feel like something we could do all day. The 800s take a little more focus. My soleus feels a lot better. The striders get to the calf some, but, overall, today was a good day.

am--1.75 Weights and Harts+. Feeling good w/ the lifting, and the weather is coold again. We could use a few more days of that. RHR--54. 

pm--5.25 Middleton through the new underpass. Nice run w/ some people doing some nice things. Most people seemed pretty peppy after the work yesterday.

am--2.5 Cold morning run to Wells Fargo and back. There was a headwind on the way out that made the first few minutes miserable. The wind settled down after that. RHR--53. 

pm--5 Telegraph Church run. We had some new faces and others starting to step up. Good stuff.

am--9.25 Southgate out-and-back w/ 1-, 2-, 1-, 2-, 1-min. pick-ups. Sufficiently tired after this one. The elevation profile shows that it's a slight downhill on the way out and a little climb on the way back. It did feel harder on the way back. The pace overall was strong. Even though the soleus feels good, I would've been rumbling, stumbling by the end of 13 miles. Guess I'm saying not running Dogtown was a good choice. RHR--53.
