Week - 50 Month - 95 Year - 95
I had set 90 miles as the mileage goal this week. By Friday night when a routine software update turned into an all night debacle, those goals went down the drain. I was left in a pis-poor mood, tired, without focus and without motivation the remainder of the weekend. The mile followed suit: pis-poor warm-up, poor execution, crappy result. Call it a recovery week and move on...

Week - 96 Month - 310 Year - 2,975
Wed Tempo: Legs and lungs held up well but nerves/stomach got best of me on 2nd rep. Had to hit the can after 1 mile. 3rd rep felt easier than 1st. Solid work. These 2-4 x 2 mile interval sessions were a staple in my treadmill winter sessions. Dont know why but running just under 6 min pace on a treadmill feels a bit harder than on the roads, even flat roads. Regardless of the treadmill pace; output effort here is right at my threshold level. Need to get back into these more often. I think they prepare me to handle race intensity and at the same time do a tremendous job building my aerobic engine, my best racing asset.
With only one quality day this week not too much to speak of but a solid start to the base building cycle. Next week: try a tempo workout, some quicker intervals and some strides to prepare or the SMAC All-Comer meets at Smith in January. I would like to get in a decent mile and 3k this year. Don't have specific goals to test my legs over a solid 400 / 800 repeat sessions.
Current mile PR, 4:56 this year SMAC meet and 10:02 in '09 - should be able to improve on both
The important thing to do is ... not get injured doing indoor track with high mileage like i did this year - ITBAND overuse lead to a very sore petellar tendon below the left knee.

Week - 104 Month - 214 Year - 2,879
Wed: Decent workout Trying to work mileage up the next 3 weeks so didn't want to beat the legs up too much with hard intervals or tempo, especially now that the race season is finished. Sat: Decent Race - again not too hard. It was fun to hit 100 miles on the week. Should reach 3,000 on the year.
This week's 104 miles ranked as the 3rd best Sunday-Monday ever.
In all, I have completed 6 weeks (Sun-Mon) of 100 miles or more, 23 weeks of 90 miles or more. Best month ever was Jan 2008, 431 miles - the 5 weeks composing that month 90, 90, 111, 94, and 111 miles.
Best rolling 7 days total is 121 miles to finish off the month and year for 2008

Summary - good recovery week. trying to be careful. In the past, I sometimes don't give myself proper recovery time after a marathon to let my muscles completely heal from any residual micro-tears. My massage revealed some in the pelvic areas, hip flexor, lower back. IT Bands tight too. Its hard cause fitness-wise I feel real good but on Thur's tempo run I could tell I'm not ready to go hard & long just yet.
Up next was to be the Larch Hill Cross but a conflict with daugther's final soccer game. Maybe find another weekend 5k or just do some mile repeats.
