Monday - Wednesday: My Crohn's was back thanks to too short a dose of meds. I had to take two sick days Tuesday and Wednesday, but I was making a big rally by Thursday.
Thursday - 2 miles + 3 hill sprints and lots of drills. I even banged out a bunch of burpees with the team. Fun to feel my health coming around. Big turnout this year. Lots of promise!
Friday - 1 mile w/more drills. Legs a little sore from yesterday - glutes and quads mostly.
Saturday - 5 at the Fast Friends Road Race. Cold and snowing with snow accumulated on roads. I ran the 4.5 in 37:42 - 8:23 pace - 36th place. Mile splits were 8:20, 8:26, 7:59, 8:49, and around 4 flat for the half (don't feel like doing the math). I was happy to be under 8:30 pace. I felt good through 3 miles which included a long hill in mile two. Rig mode was accomplished in the last 1.5. Fun day.
Sunday - 9 w/athlete around Hinsdale. My pace was sluggish. My right calf was pretty darn tight after 6 miles. Tough day after a race.
Week - 17
Realistically, I won't get many more miles than this during track season, as I stick on campus with the throwers, sprinters, and jumpers. I'll continue doing drills and getting out on weekends.
