The Week of December 18 – 24, 2006

Synopsis of Week’s Training:
Monday was a nice easy run, but for the first time in 6 weeks of pre-training, I felt awful on a run. Not ore, but just plain awful. Fortunately, I felt a mostly better on a social night at the track on Wednesday. Bad me missed Thursday cause I was out drinking too many called vodka martinis on Morgan Stanley. Friday started an unprecedented string of running with my sis… and I loved it. :-) I got home Friday evening and convinced my sister to go for her first night run … and in the rain no less! Saturday day Gretch and I toured the park we grew up in. Sunday will get its own post.

By The Numbers:
Monday – 5. Easy.
Tuesday – 6. Awful.
Wednesday – 5. Easy.
Thursday – Off. Partying.
Friday – 5.5. Easy with Gretch.
Saturday – 7. Easy with Gretch.
Sunday – 20. 11.5 miles before a 37:53 hilly 10k.

Weekly Mileage: 48.5
Year-to-Date Mileage: 2680
Three Week Moving Average: 53.8
Year-to-Date Weekly Average: 52.5

Upcoming Training Goals:
Easy runs during the week. Easy efforts on the upcoming long runs with an emphasis on recovery.

Ps. Sorry for the delay. I’ll chalk it up to the holidays and then being sick.
