HOTlanta

During this step back week, I've had a few good runs and a couple of hard teeth gritting "crank out the miles" runs. Unfortunately, my legs are feeling a bit heavy and a bit sore. I'm going to take the time this weekend to make sure that I'm fully stretched out and fully iced down to try to cure what ails me. I may try to putz around in my yard a bit repairing some of the damage which will hopefully keep me loose.

Tuesday: 6 miles, 7:53 pace
Tuesday's run was one of the good ones. The miles seemed to fly by - mostly aided by a few podcasts. I primarily listened to the "Discovery News Friday News Feedbag". Those guys are a RIOT. In fact, I found myself laughing out loud a few times that totally threw off my rhythm and made me almost choke because I couldn't breath in. The other podcast that helped pass the time was "Ashland Dave's Running in the Center of the Universe". Good stuff - two of my favorite podcasts at the moment.

Wednesday: 6 miles, 8:45 pace with 4x800 at 6:02 average pace
Speed day. Crap day. I was able to get off work at a fairy normal time (6:30pm) and therefore was able to hit the road around 7:00pm. Unfortunately, this meant that it was still VERY hot and VERY humid out. Not very conducive weather for a solid interval run. In fact, not only was I scheduled for 7 intervals but was only able to get 4, but my times are very deceiving. Instead of jogging at a 8:30 pace in-between I walked....and rested....and made grimacing faces at cars that drove by. However, I did get some solid mileage in which I suppose is the important thing.

I may try to mix up my speed work a bit and get in some different length intervals. Maybe some 400s and some 1200s just for funzies. In fact, I may try to find a 1 mile race this fall and shoot for 5:30ish. Anyone know of any good ones in the Arizona area?

ARizona Road Racers have one mile runs every so often. I know they do some of them on the Scottdale Community College Track. It's probably the most competitive mile races around. very informal, I think.

I don't think they've scheduled any for this fall/winter yet. Go to their website to find out.
