Weekly Decline

Seems like just yesterday I was running over 20 miles in a week.  It seems like the on comming warmth has resulted in a stead decline of mileage over the past three weeks.  In reviewing my Buckeyeoutdoors.com running log shows that my last three weeks have been 17 miles, 19 miles and 13.5 miles.  Last week I had a trip to Houston that kepth me from seven on Thursday and 4 on Friday.  I have the same trip this Thursday but hope to be back to run Friday & Saturday.  But that will only put me at 18 IF I get 8 on Saturday. 

My "long" Saturday run keeps getting shorter.  We went out for 10 but I faded fast after 5 and made about 8.  I think with the temps climbing the way that they are, I will be lucky to make 8 in up comming weeks.  Oh well, more inside stuff.  I need to do some weights anyway.

Bike Race

I just had to post this video after watching it on Frayed Laces.  This looks like fun (to watch).

Running this week is at 19 miles.  I have gotten two 7 milers and a 5 today.  I won't make it Saturday as I am working the massive Race for the Cure (6-8000 "runners").  It is mostly walkers with a few runners thrown out in front.  We will time the first 500 or so that run across then it gets too crazy to do anything else.

Today's run was a seven miler instead of the track. The track man was not there to direct us to the track so the rest of us decided to continue on with the group. The temperature was just about perfect at 50 deg F with a slight breeze. That temp is not too cold so you can dress in shorts and short sleeve shirt. I broke a sweat but at not time was I uncomfortable like when temps start pushing 70 and above. I wish it souls stay that way. I ended up finishing 7.1 miles at 8:13 pace. It felt good.

I think as the heat turns on I need to add some indoor stuff such as weights.

I forget how much I like working races. Today I substituted and worked the ST Jos Jog. It was a nice day, the race came out Ok. I didn't get my run in and most likely this will be the first sub twenty mile week in the last five. But that is ok

Two Ways to get 21

This is not a gambling post!  If it were it would involve me losing money.  I seem to do that when I risk money in a risky way.  This is about the last two weeks of 21 miles and how I got there.  Both weeks I ran four times in the week.  The first week was three shortish/easy runs around 4 miles plus a 10 miler on Saturday.  Last week was two shortish runs plus one day at the track and six miles on Saturday.  Looking at my two weeks I see that I could up my miles easily if I could just get out of the bed.  Tues track with 6-7 miles total, Thurs 7 mile loop, that 13 so far.  Friday 4-5 mile easy and Saturday 10 miles for a grand total of 27-29 miles.  If I could just get up!
