I could do some Muhammad Ali or some Dr. Seuss and maybe a little Sam I Am and throw in some rhyme but hey, its Monday morning. I'm going to keep it simple. Week 9 training is in the books. I had a great week of running. I ran six of the seven days last week. On my one day off, I did what I think you tri-guys and tri-gals call a brick workout. I took my mountain bike out for a 12 mile ride and followed it up with a 450 yd swim in the pool. It was a pretty good workout for a day off. In kind of a strange twist, the week also included two races. We were in St. Charles last weekend for a Sunday morning 5 miler and Cobden this past weekend for a three miler. I love running local 5-K's. They just have a great atmosphere.
Here are the numbers for the week.
8/1 5 miles St. Charles Flat Five 45:44
8/2 3.2 miles 800 repeats--Pullium Pride, parked in family cemetery
8/3 3.2 miles Hill Repeats--Maple Hollow, Cape County Park
8/4 Mountain Bike ride and Swim
8/5 10 mile run--City Park
8/6 3.2 miles--At Parent's House
8/7 3.1 miles Cobden Peach Festival 5K 26:35
All together-----27.7 running miles.
