April 8th to 14th

Long Run 16 miles (16/16)

Easy Run 12 miles (12/28)

Easy morning run 4 miles. In the afternoon, I did a workout with the MSU team. I felt even worse than I did on Saturday. It has been a while since I have felt this low on energy going into and during a workout. Making the workout even more difficult, were very strong winds varying from maybe 15 to 25 mph. Anyway. I started out planning to do 1200s, but switched to 1000s after Dan Jackson had to stop because of a quad strain. So, after two 1200s, I jumped in with the other MSU guys doing 1000s. My times were something like 3:27, 3:26, 2:48, 2:49, 2:55, 2:42. I am going to take it easy for a couple of days and try and get my legs back under me. (13/41)

Took the day off today because of low energy levels and the top of my right foot is a little sore. (0/41)

Easy run 12 miles. (12/53)

Morning run in Pocatello of 4 miles. In the evening, 800 at Utah Spring Classic. Only ran 1:55, but wasn't too bad. Anything faster than mile pace feels foreign to me at this point. Also, still feeling tired. (10.5/63.5)

Steeple at Weber State University. Ended up running a pretty slow time of 9:06, which adjusts to 8:54 with the ncaa altitude adjustment. Felt pretty rough over barriers. Hope getting a steeple under my belt will help me to run well at Mt. Sac. Pretty nervous with training not going great and these two sub par races. Have to get it rolling for this coming Thursday at Mt. SAC. (5.5/69)

Weekly Summary
69 miles in 8 runs.
