 Today I ran 9.1 miles at a 6:40 pace in 1:00, and on my lunch hour I ran 2.1 miles at a 6:53 pace on the treadmill.

The weather was around 30 degrees so that was nice.

Today I did hill repeats. First I had to run 3 and a half miles to get to the hill I wanted to run the repeats on. I didn't won't to drive because I wanted to warm up first. I did 5 repeats at 400m I wanted to do more but I started getting a stomach ache on the second repeat. I ate refried beans the night before need I say more. But I did run a total of 11 miles at a 6:55 pace. It took me 3 and a half miles to get back home with a stomach ache that wasn't very enjoyable.

I felt it was a good work out with the hill repeats that I did do.

Tomorrow tempo run.

I didn't get much sleep last night because our son was up and down all night. When the alarm went off to run at 6am I didn't want to even get out of the covers at all, but I did 20 minutes later. I was scheduled for a tempo run after running hill repeats yesterday. I felt sluggish the first 800m of the run like I wasn't even ready to move. I did the first warm-up mile at 7:09 then the tempo miles

If you count the average with the warm-up mile I did 10.5 miles at a 6:18 pace in 1:06. I didn't want to dip into the 5 minute mile range, because I wanted to be consistent in the low 6 minute miles.


I still haven't made reservations for a hotel, and a plane ticket to Boston. I'm getting frustrated, because I don't know anything about the Boston area. Like once I get off the plane from Boston I need to get a cab to the hotel. The one I was looking at staying was Constitution Inn http://www.constitutioninn.org/, but they don't have a shuttle to that hotel, so I don't know if I have to pre-arrange a cab ahead of time or what. Some of the hotels I've called are not a lot of help. The Salt Lake Marathon that weekend is sounding more and more enjoyable to run and a lot closer, only 150 miles away.

Today I ran 7.2 miles at a 7:04 pace in 50:59 minutes, in a rainy muddy mess. I wanted to really cut my pace back because of the back to back speed days, and tomorrow morning I'm going to run 16 miles for my long run on Friday again. I have to take time off from work, because I'm at the max for my vacation hours so I chose to take a few hours off in the morning. That's horrible I'm forced to take vacation. I don't want to take any vacation right now because I have too much to do.

Friday morning I decided to do my long run, because I was off from work the first half of the morning. I was scheduled to run 16 miles but when I got half way into the run I decided to run 18 miles instead. I run a very up and down hill course probably like nothing I've done before, and I came away feeling really good after the run.

I want up and down 500 feet three different times in this run to get ready for Boston

I ran 18.2 miles at a 7:02 pace in 2:08.

Today I did a recovery run of 10.1 at a 7:15 pace in 1:02, it felt really good. I was a little sore from yesterday's long run, but felt really good after the first mile. I know my pace should be slower but I felt that I really back off and was running slower. But I do know the first 5 miles I run a pace of 7:30 per mile. The run was really easy. It's amazing how you can run so far on a recovery run, and if like you didn't run at all.

I won't run tomorrow so my weekly total is below (I could run just to get over 70, but who cares it's not that important).

Total miles for the week: 68.2 miles.
