December 16th - 22nd

Long Run 18 miles total. I ran way too hard today. I am not sure what got into me. The footing was horrible pretty much everywhere but the 2 mile square loop so I decided to just run loops on the square loop. I ran 7 loops with a warm up and cool down. I started at 6:10 pace and finished at 5:20 pace so 14 miles of the run was pretty quick. The last 6 miles was about 32:20. My heart rate (168-170) was pretty high the last 4-6 miles. (18/18)

Took the day off. (0/18)

8 * 1200 with 1 minute rest on Fieldhouse 200 meter indoor track with Dan Jackson and his friend Chris. If it had been up to me, I would have wanted to do this workout outside. However, Dan Jackson wanted to do the workout inside so he could get an accurate reading of his fitness level. It was a lot of laps, but it ended up being not too bad. We wore heart rate monitors and I tried not to exceed 175 beats per minute, which I didn't for the most part. For the 8 1200s, I probably averaged about 3:47. Not a super hard workout, but it was very high quality aerobic. (11/29)

Triple Tree loop extended, about a 13 mile easy run. (13/42)

Tempo run - 6 miles. Did 3 of the 2 mile square loop. Mile splits were about 5:15, 5:15, 5:10, 5:15, 5:05, 5:15. The second, fourth and sixth miles are slightly uphill. My heart rate was generally about 170, but would get up to 175 on the 800 meter uphill section. (11/53)

Easy run of about 10 miles. I went a little shorter today because I woke up with a sore throat. (10/63)

Felt pretty sick today. I could and maybe should have gone for a short run, but I didn't. Sore throat, tired, and achy all day. I shouldn't have taken Monday off because with taking today off, I ended up being pretty short on mileage this week. (0/63)
