free at last from an action-packed week
I have disconnected from the VPN, shut down outlook and SQL enterprise manager and the not-so-nifty SQL 2005 client tools, and now I'm free not to be an IT worker bee for the next 3 days, unless the pager goes off. I'd kinda hoped for a quiet week, but developers kept wanting to throw their undebugged, half-written code into production, so I've been very busy helping them with their throwing.
Because this week saw an increase in mileage, I've done little else but work, run, and sleep. I blew off a lot of email, which I hope to catch up on starting now. I did manage to go out to eat at a real restaurant with my husband. I'm not sure we've done that since our trip to Baltimore in October, but anyways it was a treat as always.
About the running: this week I've done almost everything on the schedule; I slacked a mile on two separate runs so I could tack them on to my hill run this coming Sunday. So far it's gone like this:
M: 8.15mi in the morning; 3.85 at night, all easy
T: I love track! 12xsort-of-300, sort-of-200 rest (I can't find 300m on a 400m track when it's dark outside), avg just under 1:05, 9mi total, I love track!
- sore hamstrings getting more sore -
- massage Tuesday afternoon
W: 8mi in the morning, 3 at night, very easy and babying the hamstrings
R: 14mi mostly low 8s, last 2.5mi @ 6:48, felt really good
F: 9mi in the morning, 5 in the afternoon, all easy, hamstrings still happy
Tomorrow I have 8 with 8x strides, and xmas morning Albert and I (and maybe my husband and maybe our friend Mary Ann) will go run 21 or so in the hills. If all goes well I'll have 89 miles this week. If all goes well I'll have over 3500 miles for the year.

Here's to your pager not going off, and wow, 89 (or so) miles! Happy holidays!
