This Week in Running: 10.4 to 10.10.10

Monday 10.4
AM: core
PM: 13 in 93:09
6 x 5 min pickups w/ 1 min recovery.  Did this one at Bird Park w/ Ben.  Pickups were hard but controlled.  The 60 sec recovery came up real quick.
Tuesday 10.5
AM: core
PM: 6 in 48:52
No energy today.  Good thing it was an "easy" day.
Wednesday 10.6
AM: core
PM: 12 in 79:31
Progression run: 7:30 to 5:55 pace.  The right calf started flickering a little bit so I stopped and put on the compression sleeves.  After that things were fine.  I was just tired.
Thursday 10.7
AM: core
PM: 12.75 in 90:28
3 x 12 min pickups w/ 2 min recovery.  Felt pretty good today.  When I finished this one, I said to myself that I'm starting to get fit.
Friday 10.8
AM: legcore
PM: lift
Saturday 10.9
AM: 23 in 2:42.19
Started this one easy but most of my miles were in the 6:50 range.  I tried to finish this run at a fast pace but I didn't have much success w/ that, although I did get a couple in at around 6:42 pace.  I was hoping for low 6:00's.  Next time.
Sunday 10.10
AM: 7 in 61:13
Yikes.  Slow.  Bridge day to tomorrow's run.

For the Week
73 3/4 miles in 6 runs
5 core workouts
1 lifting sequence
Analysis: I felt sick to my stomach after two of my workouts this week.  I consider that a good sign.  It means I'm getting in shape.  My goal for Saturday was to put up 23, so I'm happy I hit that goal.
