Training Log: January 13-19

Sunday
8:45 AM - 19 miles, 2:05:00 - Westboro.
Backroads long run from home to Westboro, ending at Casey's place to shower before opening the store. 6 x 100m strides @ WHS track. Felt great!

Monday
10:15 AM - 10 miles, 1:14:40 - Auburn.
Easy run around town in the snow; last 3 miles in 7:03, 6:59, 6:37. Footing was less than ideal.

Tuesday
8:05 AM - 10 miles, 59:50 - Jarrin 10. Fartlek before work. 15:00 easy, 25:00 of pickups, steady mile in 5:19, easy 1/2 mile in 3:23, 2 miles of pickups back home in 5:42, 5:21. New PR for the loop!
7:00 PM - 4 miles, 30:00 - PR Running.
Short shakeout on the treadmill after work. Need to get an iPod.

Wednesday
7:30 AM - 8 miles, 57:45 - Horgan Track.
Easy out-n-back to the track. Cold and tired but otherwise no complaints.
7:00 PM - 4 miles, 30:00 - PR Running. Rat wheel after work. Started out real slow and worked my way down to slow.

Thursday
7:55 AM - 13 miles, 1:24:10 - McCracken Road.
Out-n-back on the McCracken Road rollercoaster. First 3 miles easy in 21:35, then 10 miles steady progression in 1:02:35. Last 2 miles in 5:47, 5:34.

Friday
7:25 AM - 10 miles, 1:08:10 - Jarrin 10.
Easy does it in the rain and slush. Too sloppy for strides.

Saturday
7:30 AM - 7 miles, 47:00 - Rockland 7. Relaxed run before work. 6 x 20/40 strides on the way home.

Totals: 85 miles, 9 runs.
Solid week on the whole. Mileage was good, long run went well and the fartlek and progression run both served their respective purposes. I'm racing the aptly named Frostbite 15K tomorrow morning in Raynham and I'm excited to lace my flats back up again, even if I won't be able to untie them afterward.

You still running in Raynham on Sunday? I think I'm coming down that way this weekend and will be in town. See you there.
