Friday Lunch

5k  done the usual way on my meal break today followed by and upper body weight routine...quickly that is!   Have something going on with my lower back kind a precursor of sorts point toward a round of sciatica ...its been along time but that little bout half dozen years or so ago sidelined me for a few weeks.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

Wednesday and Thursday

32.3 LSD Durham and back done on a rather warm windy Wednesday.   Dehydrated but was sweating too much to catch back up  so the last hour was quite a slog!   Took an unplanned rest day on Thursday another one of those instances of not enough hours in a day.

Mid 7

Mid 7 done and that a wrap on this round of nights.   For the past 32 years more or less once out of every 6 weeks I work 7 night shifts.  Working Mids its no longer a job more a way of life,   Getting into the Gym and doing a Run is about the only good thing I can say about working this God Awful Shift.

Logged a 14K run this morning on my meal break.  Ramped up over teh first 2Ks to a 5:00 pace then held that through 13.1Ks starting a cool down.   Every K from 4K on I did a 0.2K 4:45 fartlek.

2017 Race Calendar

Just added this one to my 2017 Race Calendar ...ENDURrun: 8 Days, 7 Stages, 160 km.   I have always been interested in this one so its now all in.   I figured its best to comit now so I can plan the rest of the 2017 races around this event.   Look at it as a running Vacation of sorts!

Mid 6

12K @ 5:00 pace with 4:45 0.2K  fartleks starting at the 4K mark.
