Another good workout on the track.  I was a little worried going into this due to the wind but I knew I needed to push through this to give myself some confidence.

I did a 2 mile warm up and then a 2 mile cool down and then did 6 x 1000m with 200m recovery and then finished off with 4 x 400m with 400m recovery.

My 1000 times were 3:09, 3:09, 3:07, 3:06, 3:06, 3:07 and my 400 times were: 1:11, 1:12, 1:11, 1:11.  Very happy with how this morning went.  Great start to the day.

3 miles this afternoon with the soccer boys.

1 mile running to the house to get a gas can due to the truck running out of gas.  Eventful!!!

Decent workout this morning.  I did a 2 mile warm up, 4 mile tempo, and then a 2 mile cool down.  I hit the tempo miles at 5:20, 5:21, 5:18, and 5:21.  It was a little cooler this morning but I was jazzed about the run.

4 miles this afternoon with the soccer boys.  I was going to go to club run but Katey was sick.

Ran with Steve and Dave this morning.  We started at Dave's house and then ran over to Coral Canyon to run the entire Dogtown Half Marathon course.  Pretty hilly course and it doesn't help that it runs right by the dump and then has about a mile worth of dirt which could literally break an ankle.  I am glad I am going to be out of town so I don't need to do this race.  We kept the pace honest and pushed the last 8 miles into a progressive tempo.  The last couple of miles were sub-5:45 pace.  We averaged 6:33/mile for the entire run and the weather was just right.  Great run with the guys.

Another solid week and I am happy I hit all of my workouts.  Need to keep hitting the big workouts and hopefully I can continue moving in the right direction.
