End of the Week Recap 1/24/10

Hail my running brothers and sisters!  This week I logged 31.28 miles at an average of 9:01/mile.  I did 55 minutes of cross-training.  My weight looks to be in the 163 range still.  The most noteworthy accomplishment for the week was that I got in a real long run.  I did one 11.2 mile loop around the Main Drive at Percy Warner Park at 9:02/mile.  The last time that I did just the Main Drive was back on 9/26/09 and I ran it at 9:04/mile.  Overall, it appears that my run today was a very modest improvement, but I think that it was actually a huge improvement considering that I haven't run over 8 miles since the Clarksville Half-Marathon back in November. Honestly it was all I could do to get out of bed and slug out that run in the cool drizzle today, but I made myself do it.  I'm very glad that I did it too even though I was cursing myself for my stupidity as I dragged myself through PWP.

A quick shoot out and congratulations to Phoebe Wright for her 1st place finish in the 800m with a time of 2:04:00 at the Virginia Tech Hokie Invitational.  Phoebe is the daughter of a fellow law school student, and I can say that I remember her when.  You can read more about her win here.

Okay, now it's late and I'm really, really tired.  So I'm out.  Have fun and run hard!

Hey Anonymous...if that's your real name. LOL. While, I am in general a fan of most video games, I'm afraid that I can't get into most first-person shooter games. I'm one of those people that get motion-sick if I try to play them for any length of time. This really sucks for me, since there are so many great shooters out there like Call of Duty. Interestingly enough, I don't have this same problem playing sims or MMO's. I have no idea why.
