I was highly unsuccessful in my goal to post all of my runs last week. Hopefully that will change this week, today I did my first speed workout in over two weeks. It went alright, all things considered I'm not dissapointed, it was a very hard workout. Not sure if I'm going to be ready to race at UVU, thats pretty soon and my level of fitness isn't very high. I think I'd probably run somewhere in the 4:teens for the 1500 if I did race. I'm really just trying to build and get some confidence going into summer training for cross country next year, the team is going to be really competitive and I want to be at my best. My new goal is to run like 70-80 miles per week in may and june and hopefully build on that in july and then when cross country comes in august be able to hold the mileage that is expected of the top guys on the team so I can train with them. I've been having some weird lung/throat problems for a while, probably need to see a doctor about it. I also want to start putting in a weekly long run on saturday that is much longer and slower than the rest of the week. A lot of times this year I've ended up having saturday as my shortest run and I think that hasn't been good for recovery or base building. I cut my mileage and am rebuilding it but I think I should do a little less during the week and then a really good long run every saturday morning where I just enjoy it and let my body recover. I also want to eat healthier and drop some weight because I am back up to 150 and I definitely feel a difference when I'm closer to 140 at longer distances. There's also the whole core thing that I need to do a better job of doing on my own. I used to be really good at that.
