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!

I was planning to do 95 miles this week with recovery week next week, but decided to switch them since I will have more free time to run next week.  Man, it was nice to sleep in till 5:45 this morning and not run!

PM- 10 miles.  Supposed to include an 8 mile tempo.  However, for some reason I got really lightheaded and dizzy during the tempo so quit it after 5 miles and jogged it in.  Not sure why that happened, but oh well.  5 miles at 7:30 pace, 5 miles at 6:10 pace.

PM- BW.  14 miles with 8x 1 mile repeats, with .25 mile jog in between each repeat.  All my mile times were between 5:42-5:49.  I felt very good during the repeats and afterwards (so good that I added an extra repeat to my planned 7), though my stomach wasn't happy and required multiple pit stops.  Good run.

AM- Long run with Cody and Paul.  It was rather chilly- 16 deg with a very cold breeze from the SW.  We ran up onto the Millville and Providence bench to get out of the inversion fog.  It was rather pleasant and even sunny up top, but once we had to descend it was again foggy and cold, especially when running south or west.  Paul got over-eager a few times and pushed the pace as fast as 6:15/mile until we complained.  Then he would wait a few minutes and do it again.  Lots of good conversation and no one lost any toes or fingers.  It makes me look forward to spring and summer when the 3 of us can do more runs together in more favorable weather.  17 miles, 2:02:00 (7:09/mile).

Good end to a recovery week.  The next two weeks will be the hardest of my whole race build up and should be my highest mileage ever, including a double long run next week of 5 hr and 4 hr.  I made hotel and car reservations this week, so everything is 100% ready.  All I have to do is 7 more weeks of training (4 hard), then get on the airplane.
