Monday: 0 - long work day
Tuesday:  2 miles, circuit, 4 x 1/4 @ 7.2.  Good overall effort for an hour.  LOG 4
Wednesday:  Pisgah with Greg and Griffin- Nash - South Woods.  Griffin stayed with me once they caught up to me and let Greg go!  Yay!  Screamed when I ran into Glenn and Jimmy.  Sore ankle but a wonderful morning. 1:22.  Log 9 miles.

Saturday:  Pisgah with Roxy from Hinsdale XC team.  Old chesterfield Road OAB 25 min.  LOG 6

Okay, next week I should be getting into a better rhyhm and can add gym stuff and more lifting.  Miles just don't keep the weight off for me.  Hopefully i'll have more to say once I get going.  Planning on running Elijiah's race next sunday to get miles.  Not sure I can pull it together in time for a good Pisgah race, but maybe a good Lil Rhody!  It's a process and I love it.

Wednesday: AM: 2mi TM;  PM: Whitcomb Road loop from MRHS with Tat.  Core.  LOG 7

Thursday:  0

Friday:  elliptical + TM.  Log 3.

Saturday: Yankee Candle 5K with Greg and Fyffe.  23:41.  50 seconds slower than last year, but won my age group and 3rd overall female.  No candle for age group winners this year - BOOOOOOO!  Felt miserable during but I'm not as far back as I thought.  Log 4

Sunday:  Pisagh with Grif, meant to do mini-vistas but missed the turn for hubbard and went all the way to kilburn trailhead on Davis.  whoops.  1:50.  LOG 11

More miles than I thought but only because I got lost in Pisgah - well not lost- but missed a turn and went 5 extra miles.  I felt strong but was really thirsty.  If I had planned a 2 hour run I would've carried water.  My feet hurt a lot - ankle not better.  Still need to get the extra spin classes and other crosstraining in as well as more circuit madness.  I know this.  It's a process and I love it!
