Keene & USATF NE Indoor Championships

February 15th (Monday): 9 miles in the PM.

February 16th (Tuesday): 7.5 miles in the AM with some snow. 5.5 miles in the PM.

February 17th (Wednesday): 5 miles in the AM. 3 miles in the PM.

February 18th (Thursday): 3 miles in the AM. Yoga class for an hour at work. Track workout in the PM. Workout plan was 6x400 and 4x200. Full rest. Tough to change into those gears. Yoga left my hamstrings sorta sore. I made it happen. 7x400 because I mentally needed to break 70. and 5x200 because I needed to break 33. Splits were as followed. 72, 73, 71, 73, 70, 70, 69, 34, 33, 33, 33, 34, 32. Froyo with Renee, Sydney and Addy for dinner.

February 19th (Friday): 6+ miles in the AM with Renee. Movie date with Goup. Deadpool. Highly recommend it, but definitely not for kids. Though, there were a bunch of them there for some reason.

February 20th (Saturday): Travel to Keene in the AM. Pit stop in Athens, VT for a 10 miles (71:23) with TPaq and Ferenc. Solid road run. Alumni shindig in the evening. Great to see old faces. Lots of dancing.

February 21st (Sunday): Travel to Boston to run the 3,000m at the USATF New England Indoor Championships. 4 mile warmup (29:27) with Scott Mindel and Renee (fellow Saucony Hurricane teammates). Switched into spikes and ready to roll. Legs felt fresh and with some pop. Splits were solid. Rounded up and made it to add up to my finish time of 8:42.75. 400ish splits with a final 200. 65 (with the short lap), 71, 72, 71, 71, 70, 70, 32. Happy with the time. A few seconds off the PR of 8:40.

68 miles for the week with some solid track work, some double days and a quality performance at the 3K. Keep it rolling.

 Friday morning frost.

 Chocolate milk. Extra frothy.

 Target trip. Items were buy a certain number and get a $5 gift-card. I was handed 4.

 Harvard track. Cool perspective.
