Training March 13 - 19

Mon-Rest

Tues-President's Hill Run, 7.5 mi, 57:26, 7:39/mi

My Tues/Thur workouts now include 1 - 2 mile of warm-ups so my overall pace is a little slower. My legs felt a little sore overall, but no ankle pain. I think I was still recovering from the 5K.weights, 41 min, stretched

Wed-Rest

Thur-Grindstone Park, 7.5 mi, 7:45/mi

Less than 6 hours sleep on Wed night so I skipped the weights. I'm going to try to get more sleep. I noticed that I was still sore fromTuesday's weight workout as well and running pace was off. I went to bed early and slept 9.5 hrs.

Fri-Rest

Sat-MKT, 10 mi, 1:21:01, 8:06/mi

Sun-MKT, 14 mi (steady pace), 1:42:43, 7:20/mi

This was a really good run, pace was steady, and legs felt good after.Soaked in hot tub and then 2 hrs after finishing run, biked 15 miles, 1:00:13. I used my new shoes, cleats/pedals (Speedplay Zeroes) for the first time. I think I need to make some adjustments to my seat but everything went well and I didn't get stuck in the clips and crash. The brand that I bought was supposed to be easy to use and I was not disappointed.

St. Patrick Day 5K results are up at 2006 St Patrick's Day 5K Results . I placed 8th overall.

Weekly Running Miles: 39

Biking Miles:15 (we will see if I can increase this a lot in the next few weeks)

YTD Running Mileage: 451.8
