Training, May 24 - May 30

Monday:  6 PM - 18 quality - Very hot, 85 degrees or so, sunny, and humid... (no real end in sight to this whether either).  Started easy running with Kate and Lindsay, eventually picked it up pretty good rolling out to Grammercy Park and Griffey, averaging sub-6 for the last half.
Total - 18

Tuesday:  11 AM - 13 quality - Very hot again, ran on the rail trail to clear creek.  I can't do this heat thing anymore.  I need to get up at 7 a.m., work out, go back to bed and then just run again at like 9 p.m.
9 PM - 9 easy - Ran w/ Hursh after the sun went down.  Didn't feel great.  Skipped core afterward...very tired.
Total - 22

Wednesday:  8 PM - 12 miles - 10 x 1k @ HMP w/ 200m jog rest - Reps in 3:14, 3:13, 3:13, 3:14, 3:13, 3:13, 3:13, 3:14, 3:14, 3:14 (basically 5:10/mile pace)... rests were about 0:55 - 1:00.  Planned 15 reps, but legs were just pretty dead.  Not a big shock... still got a good bit out of the workout and was overall pretty happy with it (even though I've had faster tempos for the same distance or longer). 
Total - 12

Thursday:  9 AM - 8 easy w/ Hursh on E Kerr Creek
Total - 8

Friday:  10 AM - 6 easy - Felt pretty awful.
8 PM - 9 miles - track work: goal of 8-12 x 200m at mile PR pace (4:17), so 32 seconds, w/ 200m recovery in 45 seconds.  Didn't feel great, but got in 10 reps... probably could have pushed through the last two, but it would have been sloppy, and some IU groundsperson was coming to kick me off the track anyway.  Times: 31.1 (44.2), 32.9 (46.3), 32.1 (44.5), 32.1 (45.1), 32.0 (45.8), 31.4 (45.5), 31.8 (44.2), 32.6 (44.6), 32.1 (44.7), 32.4 (44.6).  Passed the 2 mile mark in 10:15... the 32s felt pretty close to all-out because I'm just not used to this speed stuff yet. 
Total - 15

Saturday:  10 AM - 8 easy - Ran around campus.  Felt OK, warm like usual now.
Total - 7

Sunday:  9 AM - 12 easy - Ran with Lindsay, planned on adding on after we finished, but was feeling pretty beat up.
Total - 12

Summary:  95 miles - OK week, not great.  Got away from the core stuff, which I didn't mean to do...need to get back on it next week.  Got a couple of good workouts in, though not quite as good as I'd like.  Part of the issue is that I've just put on some weight in the last month or so and need to slim back down.  Mileage was down a bit, but with the added stress of workouts, not a huge deal.  Still got in a fairly long run on Monday.
