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!
