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!

PM- Medium workout.  Ran to the Aquatic center and met Paul- my legs were very sluggish right from the start, which was not a good sign.  We ran Young Ward loop.  We decided to do a tinman tempo- I wanted 5-6 miles, he wanted 8, so we settled on 6.  I wanted 6:15 pace, he wanted faster but talkative, so we did 6:15 and talkative.  3 mile warmup at 7:00 pace, then 6 mile tempo.  Tempo miles were 6:06, 6:15, 6:13, 6:11, 6:16, 6:13.  It was lightly snowing when we started but was coming down rather hard by the end.  We were rather chatty the whole tempo, which I'm sure hurt me a bit the last few miles.  The first 4 miles felt good but I was definitely working.  Mile 5 was harder, and mile 6 was much more difficult than it should have been. 

I definitely don't have my speed yet- I am naturally an endurance guy, not a speed guy, so really have to work on my speed once I have a base.  I am trying to build both right now, though my emphasis is on base.  Cool down took me to 13.5 miles in 1:31:45, 6:52 avg for the run.  Ok workout, but Thursday's will be better.

I had a workout with Paul planned, but had to cancel.  I have been feeling a bit under the weather all week, and today I started getting real achy and a bit of a fever.  I figured it would be better to take a day or two off to hopefully nip this in the bud rather than fight through it.  I haven't had injuries this season, but sickness has definitely been my bane.
