New shoes and another BEAUTIFUL day for a run in Denver! Training for a December marathon is awesome... perfect weather to run in!

New shoes felt great, and my tired and sore feet thanked me for not running yesterday!

Woke up with a hang-over after last nights debauchery! OUCH... It was so beautiful out, I jumped on my bike. I rode out to and around the CC REZ. Its been a while and I suffered from a mild case of beginners butt... although I felt a little tired on the way home, I rode pretty well considering how little I've been on my rig since the 5430 HIM.

I saw a horrible accident. Some older lady crashed near the dam and was hurt pretty badly... lots of blood.

AVG Cadence: 80

My ugly new trainers (Mizuno Wave Precision 8): I've been training in these for about 3 years now. I like the low ride and the neutral support, very light weight and probably not a shoe for 80 mile weeks, but for some reason I have done well with this shoe... I switched to Ascics DS Trainers in the summer, but I just didn't like them as much... Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Ran with Ted on the Highline Canal. I had nothing today... Tough run...Ted dropped me at 19... I managed a 7:09 here but he was flying... normally I am more competitive, but not today. Still I was able to run a 6:49 20th mile/80th mile this week so thats pretty good.

NOTE: I believe I just had the best week of running in my life!

Personal best half mary: 1:21:13
Personal best 5K: 17:55
Two 20 mile runs
80 miles logged!

Dime is tired.

Ran easy with Ramone at Cheesman park... needed a few xtra miles before the short little race tonight... Long run tomorrow and I'll bag an 80 mile week!

I may go for an easy run this morning with Ramone (or not)... Scream Scram 5K tonight at 6PM (Wash Park)! Hope to run it well... MY personal best is 18 min and change. Hopefully tonight I will be able to crack the 18 minutes... I don't run very many 5K's so this one counts! Probably won't dress up. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Scream Scram 5K was great! 17:55 a new personal best - about a 5:46 per mile pace (or to put it another way, 11 miles per hour)

I took out a loan on my empty heart, babe
I took out a loan for my patient soul
And I feel alive as long as I don’t need you
And I feel alive as long as I keep hold

Good run at Wash park

ICKY THUMP Got a bump When I hit it on the radio Red-head señorita Lookin' dead Came to said, "I need a bed" en español So I gave a drink of water I'm gonna sing around the collar Well, I don't need a microphone Icky thump, with the lump In my throat Grab my coat And now it's reckon I was ready to go Yeah, I swam beside the hair She had one white eye One blank stare Lookin' up, lyin' there On a stand in her hair Was a candy cane Black rum, sugar cane Dry eye, somethin' strange! La la, la la la la la la la la la laaa laaa laaa Well, Americans: What, nothin' better to do? Why don't you kick yourself out? You're an immigrant too. Who's usin' who? What should we do? Well you can't be a pimp And a prostitute too Icky thump, handcuffed to a bunk Robbed blind Looked around And there was nobody else Left alone I hit myself with a stone Went home And learned how to clean up after myself -- The White Stripes

Decided to take advantage of the nice day and get one of my 20 mile runs done; 3 down, 3 to go! I have missed the past two weekends because of races. I felt pretty good out there considering I raced on Sunday. Negative split: 1:15:49 out and 1:13:57 back. I started to feel some tightness in my knee at around 17 but still had the strength to run hard on 19 and 20.

Stopped for a Banana Berry Jamba Juice on the way home.

I've been running for about 5 years now. When I first started doing marathon training back then, I used to be totally spent after my 20 mile runs. I couldn't work, I needed a nap... my whole day was affected. Now, It doesn't seem like that big of a deal. They are hard but not like they used to be. The body is a crazy piece of machinery... it adapts to the workload placed upon it. I am really beginning to feel confident for my Marathon in December... I don't know if I'll break 2:50 or not, but I am going to go into the race prepared that is for sure!

Today's Shuffle Mix Consisted of songs by the following artists:
Arcade Fire, Beirut, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Bright Eyes, Elliott Smith, Interpol, The Mooney Suzuki, Reinging Sound, Sea Wolf and The White Stripes... Good stuff!
