5PM
Race report is posted.

9AM
Qualified top seeded for the PRR!!! Unofficial time: 17:17, but I think official time is closer to 17:12 since I started Garmin before the timing chip was activated.

Fourth overall, but I had to leave due to other plans.

This is THE course to run if you want to PR a race...

Redlined this course the entire way. Also, my legs felt tired from yesterday's 50 miler. Will post a race report later.

NOTE: The big goal during today's 5K is to run 17:36 or better. If I do that, I qualify as a top seeded runner at the PRR. This will be a very tough goal to attain.

I should log it! :)

 Good session this morning. The hill intervals kicked my arse.

12PM The gym closed the pool b/c the lifeguard had to leave. Gah. Jumped on the stationary bike for a 45 min sweatfest.

Crap, those ticker symbols make everything seem closer than they really are...I might just remove them.

7AM
IM training will consist of 2x ST per week to strengthen muscles and prevent injury.

Swim on tap for lunch.

FYI, If you forgot to bring dress socks, Under Armour black ankle socks are very comfortable in dress shoes. Don't knock it unless you've tried it. Just sayin'.

12PM Worked on a few things today. Ran by the mirror and worked on footstrike, posture, and breathing.

It's funny to me that I now consider a 6-8 mile run short...

7AM
Good way to start off the week. The plan calls for a recovery week, but that ain't going to happen...at least, not this week.

Last 20 mins of this workout I did hill intervals at an almost topped out resistance. Legs were burning.

7PM Bidding on a set or rollers off Ebay.

I registered for the CRR 5K. This will be my only attempt at qualifying for the PRR as a top seeded runner. Goal for this 5K is anything under 17:36.

Well, feeling crappy again. Sinuses are congested and my eyes feel puffy. Suck.

11AM Ran Seals Rd. twice. First time ran it kind of easy, second time ran it harder. I am beginning to hate the wind...

Time to look around for a trainer or rollers.

10AM
Well shit...I think I broke my trainer...Damnit. Going for a run.

9AM Another busy day on tap. Church, then family visiting. Time to jump on the trainer, as it's just a bit too cold to ride outside...
