3 miles in the morning and 3 miles in the afternoon. Not a lot of time this afternoon due to a graduate school class. My legs are hammered still from the race on Saturday so no big deal.

5 miles in the morning with the team and then ran a little extra. 

9 miles this afternoon with the team. Tons of wind this afternoon but ended up running with some of the girls over towards Little Valley and back. Weights after and then back out for another 3 miles to Hidden Valley. Boo wind!

10.20 miles this morning with the Circle of Trust and Wildbull. Good times and enjoyable conversation as usual. On the drive to work, I hit something in the road and had one of my tires literally blow out! I stopped to fix the flat and put on the spare when suddenly it started to snow. What? I was freezing while I switched the tire. My lucky day I guess.

7 miles this afternoon in more wind. 2 mile warm up and cool down with 3 x 1600m repeats with the top boys. We did a little different workout today but it was still a great push for them.

Two loops out on Little Black Mtn. with Dave. Trevor Thompson joined us for the first loop which was fun having him along. Kept the pace nice and relaxed for the run. Right around 1:10 for each loop. Kept looking at the mountain where Dave and I will be running on Monday. Should be interesting!

Ready for the Big Kahuna, Whole Enchilada, Mother of all Mothers, and Joe Montania for Monday. Have not ran that far ever at one time. It should be a memorable run though. Great way to start Spring Break.
