Weekly Rundown- 5/5/2008-5/11/2008

Quick Recap of the past week (minus all the ice cream I inhaled)

Monday- Strength training at the gym with Daisy, 60 minutes. Squats, lunges, drills for the legs, lots of lifting for arms and shoulders, then some core work

Tuesday- Track workout with Daisy ~6 miles. 6*400 with 200 recoveries. All quarters were under 1:28 progressively getting faster. I felt pretty good.

Wednesday- Easy 45 minute run with my downtown gals, stopping to stretch at the big red stamp

Thursday- Tempo Run with Daisy. 2 mile warm up, 3 miles tempo, 1 mile cool down. Just a good effort run for me

Friday- 20 Miles down at Mohican (this warrants a post of its own)

Saturday- Hiked with David at Shaker Lakes Nature Center and mowed the lawn, shoyld have tried to get in a short run but was too lazy

Sunday- 21 minute warm up, Mom's Day 5k, 10 minute cool down

Feeling all right. Allergies or sinuses or something have been bothering me every morning this week, this morning has been the worst so far. My legs felt surprisingly okay after the midnight 20 miler. Just a little bit of lower back soreness and my right quad was complaining a bit, nothing a few epsom salt baths won't cure. Starting to build back up my mileage in preparation for jumping into a real training program soon.

Hey... Are you running Cleveland this weekend? I think I'm going to come down to run the 10k. Yeah, I know, I'm going to be driving 6 hours for a freakin' 10k. But I figure it'll be a good time to catch up with everyone.

I'm impressed that you strength train. I read that the key to being fast is having strong muscles. I keep telling myself that I need to start lifting weights, but I've yet to stick to it. Maybe after San Diego.

It was nice to hear from you. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
