Chicken salad for dinner. Spicy!
Over to The Recovery Room for a bunch of waters with some co-workers. Home by 8pm. Out for a late night tempo. 10+ miles (59:29). Officially 10 miles at 59:08 with 3 sets of 30,60,90. Felt smooth and relaxed. Surprised my legs have bounced back to run this. Protein shake for dinner. Cut up chicken and marinated them in the two go-to marinades.
July 31st (Wednesday): 3 in the morning solo. No watch worn. Protein shake for breakfast. 3 mini wraps for lunch. Covered the SIPP meeting today. Home to chill and get out for an easy 7 miles (48:11) in the evening. Normal day overall and a two good recovery runs.
August 1st (Thursday): Nothing special on the day. Forgot what I ate. Most likely it was a protein shake for breakfast, wraps for lunch and a snack before the speed session.
Goal was 8x400 and times were gonna range from 65-70 depending on how I felt on the track. Goup and I carpooled down to Burnt Hills high school. 3 mile warmup (21:11 + strides). Ran smart and relaxed. 71, 71, 70, 70, 69, 69, 68, 68. Nothing crazy, but felt good after the 1st one. Total time: 16:20 for the 3 miles on the track. 4 mile cooldown (28:20). 10 miles on the day.
August 2nd (Friday): 5.5 miles (40:52) with Goup and Ken Little (Fleet Feet guy that runs for the team and lives right down the road in the same complex) for a morning run at 6am. Sorta a quick pace for a morning run, but it was a good group run.
Some cucumber salad for a snack before hitting the road.
Amazing sky while driving to Leominster.
