Tough week of running and lots of hail

5 miles 36:04 7:12 average per mile
I believe my cold has turned into Bronchitis. I went out and bought
some medicine it seems to be helping.  Breathing feels difficult
and my energy is low. Besides being sick all week the weather
here has been very stormy. We have had rain and hail all week.
Our roof has taken a beating and has hail damage. Basement is
mostly dry but water is seeping through. I'm ready for some
dry days and sunshine.

Albuquerque Half Marathon

Albuquerque Half Marathon
13.1 miles 1:20:28 6:10 average per mile
5th Overall
8:00 am) mid 40's cloudy
I did this race last year and finished in 1:18:26 and 2nd place.
I didn't suspect I would run faster this year. My training has
been off. I have run less mileage, been sick more and had
a injury. I'm hopeful I have turned a corner and training will
get better. I don't really have much time to improve my fitness.
I have 4 weeks till my next race Green Bay Marathon.

5 miles
Hiked La Luz trail with Bethany. This was very fun. Trail
is 9 miles up to the top. It's single track with around 19
switch backs to the top.


4.10 miles
Easy run Ute Valley Park.
Still sore from Half Marathon.

CC Track mile repeats

5.5 miles
4:45 pm) 60's sunny & breezy
1.25 mile warm up
3 X 1 mile repeats with around 2:00-2:15 rest between.
My goal was to run the first one pretty slow just to warm up
and test out the calf. I got a bit carried away and ran a 5:50.
I was thinking I would run my first one in the 6:10-6:20 range.
The second one was a bit slower 5:52. The third and final one
was about the same effort other than me pushing a little bit
harder on the 4th lap 5:46. Felt pretty spent afterwards.
I only did 3 since Im racing a half marathon Saturday.
1.25 cool down


5.25 miles Ute Valley Park.
Nice easy trail run around 8:00 average
