March 18-24

Oops, little behind on this sorry.

Monday March 18: 70min easy in Central park. Was up bright and early to run with Abdi Abdirahman…but he stood me up, so I just ran all by myself…through central park…in NewYorkCity…life is great. Legs also felt fine after yesterday’s race, good stuff. 10

Tuesday March 19: So I was supposed to fly home from NYC last night, just a simple little 90min flight, no stress at all. But then there was a snowstorm in NewYork, just enough snow to cancel my flight. Lame. I was at the customer service trying to re-book and the lady ahead of me was stressing hard. She was a prof from UVA and she absolutley had to be home for a test. The ticket guy suggested maybe flying to DC and then renting a car, good plan but…she can’t drive! I can! So we flew to DC, Her, me and another lady. After a long ass delay in DC, and some shenanigans with car rental I finally made it home at 6am. Slept a bit but was pretty tired, only ran 70easy today. 10miles.

Wed March 20: am, easy 80min was gonna workout today but we shifted things back due to the travel and lack of sleep shenanigans. 12miles.

pm: 62min, nice easy stroll. 9miles.

Thurs march 21: Workout, 22miles progression out at Keane. Keane is a nice 6ish mile loop, half country roads, half paved road, 100% rolling, it’s a grind! 3@5:41, 3@5:29, 10@5:16, 2@5:10, 1@5:21, 1@5:16, 1@5:08, 1@5:02 1:57:20 for 22miles. really good workout, best progression I’ve ever done. Was pretty pumped with this one. 2mile cd for 24 on the day

Fri March 22: Just did a couple hour runs today. Am was a struggle, I was tired! Afternoon was much better. Recovery day. 18miles.

Saturday march 23: 90min, felt good on this run. Legs feeling recovered from thurs. Ran with my GPS apparently my easy run pace is a little quicker than I though, cool. 14miles.
