I'll start off with a weekly, because it's easy:

M: 10mi (8:52)
T: 9mi (8:28)
W: AM 6mi (9:08), PM 6mi incl 4x1000, avg 3:52
R: AM 8mi (8:58), PM 1.35mi "helping" at xc practice
F: 10.22mi (8:57), easy on purpose
Sa: 7.86mi incl 5K race (19:45, 2nd woman)
Su: 18mi (7:58) hill run

I managed to get through both the track workout and the 5K without too much whining, yay!

Duncan Larkin is my hero

Track workout this afternoon. The usual dread colored my whole day. But as the hour drew nigh, I dressed, packed a towel and some water and some candy-orange slices and drove through rush-hour traffic to the track. Warmed up, stood around a bit too long, then did the workout without stopping or whining too much. Even though we were a group of 5 or 6, our paces were all over the map and I ran mostly alone, with the next guy about 5-10s behind me. Kind of a wimpy workout: 4x1000, 200 recoveries; 2 sets of 2, with 400 recovery between sets. Coach's goal was 4:00 and I don't know where that came from. Actual times were 3:52, 53, 53, 50 and I don't know where that came from either. Candy-orange slices all around afterward.

Thanks, Duncan.

something I learned today

I hate it when people write eloquently about the death of animals.
