July 16th: 6:36am wakeup. Bowl of Special K Honey and Vanilla with blueberries and raspberries. Mmm. Chili for lunch. Pretzels and a Nature Valley bar. Work 7:30pm-4pm. Monday was a normal day. We did get an email from our boss that everyone's hours for Colden is 7:30-4pm. Another note was the occasional overtime hours and weekend hours. Hmmm. That should be interesting.
Home by 4:30pm. Wasn't running until much later because of the heat. With a 20 mile weekend last week, I am well rested and hoping the ankle/foot will be actively recovering this upcoming week. 5+ miles (31:35). Felt pretty good. Ankle wasn't a little stiff in the 1st 1/2 mile, then I was good to go. Cruised right through it. Last mile in 5:42.
Back to the apartment. Dripping sweat. Protein shake. Marinated my chicken strips. Showered up. Out to prepare a burrito with beans, rice, avocado, tomato and mozzerlla cheese. The beans and rice was left over from last week. The chicken is for tomorrow for lunch. Burrito and television.
Bed by 10:30pm. This week pretty much starts the build-up to the marathon in October. A few key races along the way and a plan of some big mileage to prepare myself for Hartford. Gonna be a fun ride. Cannot wait.
