Weekly Update

Had a pretty good week. First higher mileage week since the Burning River. I have jumped into my Pittsburgh Marathon plan at week 9. I will follow this plan to Columbus. First priority was getting the miles in....and I did that. Next week I incorporate the pace specific workouts. Here is what is in store...

Mon: 7 easy miles
Tue: 2 mile WU + 8x1000 meters w/3 min recovery + 2 mile CD
Wed: 13 group miles
Thu: 8 easy miles
Fri: 10 easy miles
Sat: 12 miles with 6 at marathon pace
Sun: 17 miles

My only concern is my left calf. I pulled or tore a muscle at the 2 mile mark of my 21 mile run on Sunday. It mostly feels like a charlie horse at this point. I will be careful over the next few days.

Final week of vacation ahead for both of my kids. Maddie starts on Sept 1st and I take Logan to Ohio University on Sept 3rd. The challenge for both kids (and me) is to get back into a school like sleeping routine.

Cross Country
The team had a good week of practice. We finished phase II and will begin phase III on Monday. Our first meet is on Saturday. A good showing would be a nice birthday gift for me.

Jo and I will be escorting Bill Rodgers around town again over the RRAM weekend. For being one of my running idols it is pretty cool that he even remembers me. We should have fun while he is here.
