Easy 4 miles in 27:03- 6:45/mi avg pace today on the treadmill while watching the morning news. Tried some Acai juice today, sweet stuff I must say. A friend of mine who is a late night programmer suggested I try it instead of coffee as I am horribly hooked on the bean. Did not get the lag that you experience normally with soda or coffee later in the day. Hope everyone is ok by this weekend, I am praying that everyone will be healthy by Saturday. This is one of those races where even though you are in a sense competing against each other, you are also working together as a team to help bring everyone to a shared goal of excellence. Afterall that is what the Fastrunnningblog is all about.

Easy 7 miles up and down 7th and 114th. 3 miles at marathon pace effort. 16:15 with the last mile in 5:16 going down 114 th.  THR-148-150? 0-2% decline rolling down. THR was very low and the turnover was quick, however it still felt pretty good. I keep telling myself this can not be right, but it wasn't hard either..  I am literally having to find something else to do tonight because my legs are jumpin to go again!  This is a workout I did before Ogden which really helps load the glycogen onboard.

Easy run this morning along 7th and the parkway. 3 half mile reps on the parkway in 2:42, 2:39, 2:39 respectively. One more down 114th in 2:36 with HR at 152 bpm. 5 miles total in 31:43. Fast run today but I do not care.  It felt pretty good. I told myself no excuses on Saturday I will run as fast as possible no matter the pain, until I literally drop..

After reading Ted's entry about his accident I can't help but but think about something similar in my life also. I won't go into detail about it though and I will make my entry short today. I ran the best that I could possibly run on Saturday and after running the course I figured out my weak areas and the mistakes I made also.  Even though I did not make my Olympic trials qualifier I still feel really happy and extremely pleased with my effort. I don't regret all of the work I have put into this great endeavor. Frank Shorter once said  that you are not ready to run another marathon until you have let go of the previous one. I agree, and so I need to go now and start training for PF Changs!  See you all at the races..
