Personal:

I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

AM- 11 miles. Planned on 10, and it was a slow 10 (mainly 8 min pace or slightly faster), but then I figured now that my 10 mile ban is over, why not throw on an extra mile, just cause I can.

PM- PM run with Seth and Barry. It was pretty cold out, below 40 and breezy. I actually felt really good, as opposed to yesterday. Lots of energy, no soreness from the hills or rocks, and I even ran away from the other two at the end. Normal loop, plus a little extra to go see the property Barry is thinking of buying.

Lunch- Dan wanted a workout, so we ran to the lake and ran a 5k. I tailed behind the others- my lungs generally felt ok, but my legs were burning, especially my hip flexors. Started at 6:25 pace, then gradually slowed till I finished at 6:45 pace. It was my first sub-7 min miles since June. I'll take it. Finished the 5k in 20:30 (that's nothing to write home about!) and did 8 or so miles in all.

PM- Finally had time for a run late afternoon, so I figured I'd tackle two items at once- went to the gym and watched the first half of the NFL playoff game while running 13 miles. Felt pretty good, a bit tired by the end. Once again, this was my longest run and my first 60+ mile week since June.
