Rest day.  Damn, it's cooold in Michigan :) 

 Interviews all day, and with all the goodluck sent my way, I'll know they'll be great :)  I heart BT.

  • 42m 42s
  • 5.10 miles

Recovery run.

3 am is waaaay too early to get up and run. Off to catch my flight to Michigan! It's supposed to be 71 today in San Diego, and 17 in Ann Arbor- lovely!

Have a great weekend everyone!

5x600m @5k pace, 90sec in between. My '5k' pace wasn't fast enough- only got down to a 6:33-6:50min/mile. I have to work on getting faster at shorter distances. Overall, great run. My legs aren't too sore anymore.

Busy day of packing and getting ready for my interview at Michigan.  I'm more nervous about this one than the last 2 because I really like their program, and they are at the top of my list.  It should be a fun weekend, though, assuming I don't get snowed into Ann Arbor!

Oh yeah- I found a serious running pic of me from the race that is now in my album.  Don't laugh!

I swear I was going to go to the pool tonight. I was all dressed and ready to go, when the power went out at our place. Unfortunately, we have an automatic garage, and with no power, I couldn't get my car out of there. So, I saw that as a sign saying I don't belong in the water, and instead I should get better on my bike! I rode on my trainer instead, in the pitch dark, sweating my ass off listening to an audiobook. Then, as soon as I'm done, the lights come on. How bizzarre!

Easier recovery pace since my legs still hurt.

Very sore today, but it was worth it :). After that race, I realize I have to reasses the paces I'm running for some of my harder runs, and kick it up a bit, because obviously I can run faster than I give myself credit for. Today, though, that was all I could do without screaming in pain. Stupid DOMS.

Busy day today!

Trainer ride. Kept it a bit easy to be nice to my legs, since they've been good to me today :)

Race Report is up!! It's not my official time, but there was no timing chip, so I trust my garmin more than I trust their stopwatches. Also, garmin said we went 13.17 miles, but really, whose counting ;) What a great day! So during the race, I didn't watch my HR, I just went on RPE, so when I saw the average, I was suprised. Could this race count as an LT test? Does that mean my LT is about 177, since that was my average HR for the whole race? How did I not suffer a heart attack?! I finally put in my HR zones, anyone have any feedback? Thanks :)

Well, I sort of rested today. With all my extra energy, I cleaned the apartment from top to bottom and ran errands for 4 hours- that's almost like resting, right? I officially signed up for the race tomorrow, so looks like it's a go. Also, I got a second new pair of shoes, so now I have 3 of the exact same pair! I got the 3rd pair because they were 'once worn' at RRS and only $55, which is great!
