12 24 to 12 30

mon 20 not as sick as a few days ago. i felt good so kept running. i hadnt planned on going that far so i had a solid bonk going on the end. i didnt mind. a few extra miles today wont hurt, considering all im gonna do tomorrow is eat and watch basketball.
weds 20 felt great, did 4 sets of the 6 min 5 4 3 2 1 workout. all single track, a lot of fun. going easy the next 2 days.

12 17 to 12 23

monday 0 really needed it
tues 10 with rocko. 4 sets of 5 doorway pullups. in case any one was wondering, its the same doorway that broke away from the wall when chirp was doing pullups on it a few years ago, causing him to fall flat on his back. it seems to be fixed but i still wont be using it to do any L pullups like we did last time.
weds 11 at drummer hill 8x4, 4x2. wasnt too happy with times in the high 80s and high 30s. i was getting super discouraged with how slow i was and felt like quitting, but quitting wont get me faster so i finished the workout.
thurs 0 wicked sick, flu, sinus infection, didnt go to work, didnt even bowl. thats when i knew i was really sick.
sat 9 at the mini meet. i was still feeling horrible but i ran anyway. 519/231

12 10 to 12 16

mon 10 sore, of course. after a while you just get used to feeling like your leg is attatched to your hip with a nail. ill probly just stop mentioning it since its been that way for months. other than that it was an enjoyable run,
weds workout 10 ran the whole thing with george. started with some easy 200s to get loose (38-39), then 1600, 4x4, 4x2 (536.78,78,75,73,36,35,34,34). not pleased with the 16, but i started too fast so i got what i deserved on that one. the 4s and 2s were good. i guess its a good sign if youre able to bust balls with a wolverine while running 34 sec 200s. obviously i dont have the fitness to run a fast mile saturday but im gonna race it anyway. ill probly be the slowest guy to to ever step onto the track in zoom victorys, but i didnt buy them to let them sit in a box under a pile of dirty laundry, so what the hell just run, right?
thurs 5 mile limp jog. bowling was terrible. hit my average in 3 games, but the other 2 were horrible. i had no consistency, other than the amount of bad breaks that never stopped. naj was on fire (205,190,222,178,190,985 total). he got 7 strikes in a row. i think he did it twice but i dont really remember. i dont want to either. next week is the last night of the league before we start over. weve each blown 200 plus point leads, and now were only 8 pins apart.
fri 10
sat 8 b.u. mini meet. greg led team duck ass to a solid performance (2nd in the mile, 1st in the 800), while me and glenn (english teachers cringe, incluging glenn) did the best we could in our current physical conditions. for me that meant 524/225. i got almost no sleep the night before, so i guess that was pretty good considering.
sun 20 i wasnt too sore, which was a big surprise.

12 3 to 12 9

mon easy 5, wings, chromium.
tues 8 broke out the headlamp. stonewall farm trails at night. fun run, really hot out. almost 50 degrees. kind of hard to see cuz of the fog and mist. wicked sore, not sure why since i took it easy yesterday.
thurs 13 did the 6-5-4-3-2-1 workout again, 3 sets, all in the dark. the soreness was dulled by a lot of advil. im starting to like running at night. ran the same route a few weeks ago and i was faster this time. i ran the 1 min recoveries quicker. i didnt think i was faster on the repeats but it turns out that i was. last time i ran an 800 during the 4 min on the 3rd set in 319, and this time i was 304, also late in the 3rd set. i was not close to all out so i was pleased when i saw how much faster i was. i felt good that i was able to run a solid time when i was over 10 miles into the workout. i wish i felt that good about my bowling. i had an off night. i couldnt get a consistent release and only averaged 171. naj crushed the first game (255, 7 strikes in a row) and i couldnt get out of the hole. i didnt think it was possible to roll a 197 and lose by 58. he made up 76 pins tonight. im still up 199, but it doesnt feel like it. i know what i did wrong and i know i can fix it, so im already looking forward to having a good night next week.
sun 18 tough run with ferenc and goup. wouldve been easier but yesterdays hermathon had me tired before it even started.
