Running: this was sort of a cutback week, mainly due to work (weekend overnights, just like old times), but I needed it. I still got some quality in, and apart from being very sleepy I feel better than I did this time last week.
M: AM 7mi (8:46), PM 3mi (9:23) just dead, ugh
T: 9mi (9:17)
W: 9mi incl 5x800 on the road, w/short recoveries, not stellar (avg 3:07)
R: AM 7mi (9:08) in hard rain, PM 4mi (8:46)
F: AM 12mi (8:19) progression, PM 3mi (8:46)
Sa: 11mi (7:41) with friends
Su: 7mi (8:34) after overnight shift
total: 72 miles
I'm amazed at how much harder it is to accommodate all-nighters than it was a year and a half ago. Last night I managed a 45-minute nap, and then today I slept 90 minutes in the morning and maybe 20 this afternoon, but I'm all dazed and logy, like I actually ran the long run I didn't run this week. I'd planned another 4 miles this afternoon, but if I wait until it cools off enough, I'll fall asleep.
During this afternoon's nap I dreamed I was daydreaming and all of a sudden cried out "what if what if what if what if what if!" without regard for anything going on around me. What was going on around me was John Doe spinning records, and my outburst startled him a little. The what-if's woke me up.
