45' easy run on DBU's gravel path.

Tuesday, April 26th
2M wu + 3 x (3',2',1'-equal recovery) + 2M cd. Got the entire workout in on the streets in Mansfield for a total of 9M. I definitely had a difficult time with pacing and consistency today, but 18' worth of hard running got in, so I'm sure it was not a total failure. Average paces for the surges were 5:55, 5:57, 5:41 - 5:49, 5:39, 5:29 - 5:41, 5:41, 5:10.
20' shakeout with Matt on the grass track in the afternoon.

60' easy on the grass in Mansfield. Felt pretty worn down today, but there is a VERY good chance that strong winds and an empty stomach helped in that... :)
3x6 strength + 2x30" H-core routine

Thursday, April 28th
15' shakeout in the morning.
35' w/ last 20' uptempo on the grass track. I'm pumped... this is the first week that I have had NO hip pain on my runs!!
8x120m strides. I felt pretty weak and unstable during these, which was a surprise after such a solid feeling tempo.

Friday, April 29th
15' shakeout EXTREMELY early in the morning... we're talking 5:10AM!!
35' easy on the grass track. I am feeling a bit tight and sore right now, but at least not heavy!
3x30" (v-sit russian twist, pedestal routine)

Saturday, April 30th
10' shakeout in the morning to loosen up for the day.
20' wu + drills + strides + 2M time trial + 5' easy. Ran 11:17. Disappointed in the time, but excited to have run aggressively and practice leading again. 800 splits were 2:46, 2:50, 2:51, 2:49... It would have been interesting to run with someone and to have seen how far I could've held it. Might've been a 5k pr!
strides + 400m relay leg + 5' easy. Not sure of the time, all I know is feel like the biggest goof and idiot when I try to run fast, hahah!

Total Mileage for the Week: about 51.
