So I've gotten back into the grove, for the most part. This past week I logged 34 miles with a 15 mile run on Sunday. The HR is a little higher than I would like but it is coming down. The last mile of the 15 miler I was able to hold 7:40 pace. So to put that in prespective though the week prior I ran 21 miles with a long run of 10 miles. So all in all I feel ok for where I'm at right now. The 1st race of the year is next weekend The Snake River Half Marathon. I hope to have a good race but I'm not going to kill myself. This will basically be a fast long training run. Last years race had a brutal head wind for the last half of the race, and no we did not have much of a tailwind for the 1st half. The wind really started blowing as we made the turn for home. Hopefully this year it will be dead calm. That's about the only way I'll be able to improve on last years time.
This past week was also a sad week. Jayne's grandma Gladys died. She was 92. She and Jayne were very close and alot alike. Both nearly completly selfless. Jayne spent ~33 hrs baking hundreds of treats that her and her grandma always made. I did dishes and ran to the store. Gladys was a great lady and she will be missed.

OK, Get off my ASS

Man, Between the Hobbit and Hop Along Fraser I can't get any slack. So I'm up and moving. 7 mi. on M,4 on Tues(intervals), 5 on We, with the Hobbit. And I will run 7-8 today and hopefully a little bike time. I start back to work tonight so,as is always the case, training over the next 7 days will be the challenge. With the Snake river half marathon coming up in a few weeks I need to ramp up pretty fast. It would take a perfect day for me to run better than last year, with my late start this year, but I'll give it my best shot.
