the rest of the week
This week I picked up extra shifts at work for people who wanted off for whatever reason. Ended up with 15 massages for the week - a record for me - and boy, are my arms tired. Actually they're not tired at all, but I always wanted to say that. Add to this my band's monthly show (it just sorta works out that we play once a month), which meant two practices and a very late evening at the bar Friday night, mostly spent watching (or trying not to watch, in may case) H R Puffenstuff reruns on multiple TVs while waiting to set up, waiting to play, waiting to leave, etc. I'd forgotten how much waiting is involved in playing in a band. Anywa, all this is a longwinded way of saying I'm tired. I'm tired. And I'm ready for a nap. But first, here's the full weekly:
M: AM 7mi (9:03), PM 4mi (8:47), some sharp knee pain
T: 7mi including 3mi alternating-800s workout; goal 3:35/3:15, actual 3:30/3:14. Knee much better.
W: 8mi (8:35)
R: 9mi (8:50)
F: 8mi (8:42)
Sa: 7mi (9:06)
Su: 17mi (7:30)
total: 67 miles
We've lost the little bit of fall weather we had last week, and these runs were all done in summery 75+ temps with 85+ humidity. I really didn't expect much from this morning's 17, but the running gods smiled once again and I ended up running an OK pace, even if I did end up alone for most of it. Next week is the last of the reverse-taper (77 miles) and then...I dunno, my schedule is blank still. There's time to get some good training in before Jacksonville, I think. I hope I can take advantage of it.

Just checking in K. Glad you're back in the groove.
Got nothing snazzy to say except wishing for you some cooler temps.
