Things that happened last week:
Monday: 4 miles easy "recovery". I use the term "recovery" very loosely; I felt fine.
Wednesday: 6 miles speeeeed work. On schedule: 1 mi warm up, 1mi @ 9:21, 1200 @ 9:09 pace (6:47), 2x800 @ 8:56 pace (4:28), 2x400 @ 8:30 pace (2:07), 400RI. Actual: 1mi @ 9:21, 1200 @ 6:47, 2x800 @ 4:23, 4:24, 2x400 @ 2:04, 2:05. 1:05:28, 10:54 avg pace.
Friday: Burned a hundred billion calories fretting about flying to, then driving through, Snowpocalypse.
Saturday: 3.4 torturous miles with a 4:1 run/walk. 40 minutes. That's not an exaggeration. Followed by 3 mile walk on the treadmill, 47 minutes. Altitude is no joke.


Plans for this week:
Tuesday: 5 miles easy
Thursday: 4 miles, 2 easy pace, 2 half goal pace
Sunday: Mermaid Half!

Looooooooks a lot like a taper week......

I'm also desperately seeking a reason I need to NOT register for Princess, which, coincidentally, falls on a weekend Evan Dando and those two guys he calls the Lemonheads are playing in Florida. I am 100% positive I will not stop obsessing over this until Princess sells out (I won't buy a bib, because this would be my Coast to Coast run).

So if you're on the fence about running Princess, please, for my sake, go register. The faster it sells out, the faster I can move my obsession along to the next shiny object.


  1. You are going to rock the mermaid half this weekend!!! Woohooooo!!!

    I so wish I could do princess. If you go I will live vicariously through you.

  2. Did you know you can create short links with Shortest and receive cash for every visit to your short urls.


Comments rock.
