I over slept again for a real long workout, so I went for a speed session instead with what little time I had. New PR. Old one was set on April 28, 2006 with a time of 26.13 Quite an improvement for me. Just love the fact all my splits were under 8.30!

One foot note to the run today. I could not find my good running shorts. Decided to run with older pair I do not like. Now I remember why. Massive leg chaifing. Threw them away before I hit the showers. Hope this will not affect my planned mt runns this weekend :)

Drainer ride after work. Was just not motivated to get out of bed this morning. Wanted the 1.5 hr run, but my legs would not have liked that. Still getting them back again :)

Got my run in today. Very important to start with them again. A little pissed. I missed a PR at this distance by 4 seconds today. Knew I was fast, but was not quite sure. Only drag was, I have started to run with socks again, and my feet were sore.

time for a little catchup bloggin. Sat was the funeral from hell. had lots of extra requests from the family, including having to jump down into a double deep to remove some water from the box. Only enough to be taken up by a rag. By the time I was done the family realized it was a swamp and it was not going to matter. I the process I messed up my shoulders from the big jump and climb back up. No swimming today, maybe by wed.

After funeral spent the rest of the day getting my pool pump straitended out. On sunday returned extra pump, and got ready to fix the boiler. Broke 5 of 6 bolts before getting done. Only one small leak to be finished latter

Woke up today, still sore, feel my age and then some this week. Ever since I backed off the training, I have felt beat up physicaly. My runs are still down, and that will change. Right now, if this kind of trackrecord continues, I will be turning Cranberry into a B race. I am not sure I could complete the run, and that is bad since I have a marry 6 weeks after that.

Just kind of feeling old right now, and I know that will change in a few weeks. I honestly think part of it is I have schedualed my races too few and too far apart. It seems anytime I do not race for more than 2.5 mos. I get into this funk. I will need to track it as a way to convince my wife for more races :)
