Very sick today. Could barely get out of bed and hardly slept. No run today. Time to cycle back the training for a week anyway.

AM-Feeling much better today. I must have been really worn down and depressed. Sometimes you have to just do the best you can with what you have to work with. Getting up to 100 mile weeks with being on my feet all day just won't work well right now. I refuse to give up though.

8 miles total down to the river and back with 6 miles at MP effort. By the way if anyone is interested, PBS has a special on NOVA tonight at 7 or 8 pm about their marathon challenge event. I have to get to the treadmill so I do not  miss it tonight. Gotta run.

PM-7 miles on the treadmill. Recovery from this morning was surprisingly quick. Probably from two days of relatively low mileage which in turn repacked my legs with lots of glycogen. Decided to run with a little intensity, but not so much that it would interfere with tomorows run. Went 3 miles at 6 min/mi. Finished with 2 more at 5:36 and 5:29/mi. at 1-1.5% incline. THR-152-156 bpm for the last 2 miles. 1 mile jog cooldown with stretching at the end.

AM-Went for 6 easy miles this morning. 65-75% mhr. 6:30-7:30/mi. Made a point to eat a decent breakfast of granola and fruit this morning. I was reading on the MSNBC website where a man who is currently on his 63rd consecutive marathon in 63 days consumes 8-10,000 calories a day!  That made me stop and really analyze the diet in some other aspects.  Making progress though and I'm feeling it already. Frequency is a big factor on this.

PM- Ran into some time issues tonight. 5 miles easy. 6:30-6:45/mi. pace into Draper township and back. With the exception of all the auto traffic I really enjoy running into this area. Its really rustic unlike the newer developments.

AM-Arrived home this morning from my run and turned on FOX news channel to Ryan Shays premature passing. It kind of hit me like a brick as it was the last thing I expected to see. Yet another reminder of how mortal we really are.  Rest in peace Ryan..

Congratulations everyone on their efforts at the trials race. I wish I could have been there to share the excitement and joy you must have all felt. I look forward to seeing all of your race reports about your experiences today.

      Went for 4x5 minutes hard at 5k pace effort with equal recovery lengths. Cooldown for 2 miles at 7-8min pace or so.  10 miles total.
