Good Start

Monday if my start to the week, and this week is off to a pretty good start.

A) Since I work at a catholic affiliated institute of higher learning today is an day off.  Now I'm going in for about an hour at 3 p.m., but that really doesn't count.

2) Despite being knocked for a loop by the sinister spring cold yesterday I got out there this morning and made up my long run.  12 miles total with two 4x5 minute tempo paced portions thrown in.  I wasn't able to hold the pace and my heart rate was over 190 on the last so I pulled the plug at that point.  Still a pretty damn good run especially when you factor in the sudafed (the real stuff, that PE shit is for losers) I'm taking so I can breathe.

III) It's the next to last full week of spring sports.

Only Fitting

Since April has felt more like February it's only fitting that a cold wallop the crap out of me this weekend.

Really, really looking forward to May getting here.

That Didn't Last Long

Due to the fickle nature of Mother Nature and how she has been treating the mitten this spring last minute changes in the spring sports schedules have wreaked havoc on my running schedule.

I know, I know...I've mentioned it before that I need to take care of my stuff first, blah, blah, blah but last week it really was beyond my control and I was forced to miss a run.

So the 100% goal for April is kaput.

Now the goal is to complete as many as I can with the amount of April left.  Just about six weeks to Bayshore.

The goal for the month of April is an ambitious little bitch:

100% completion of all workouts (runs, strength, everything on the plan).  Which means I'm going to have to hold myself accountable here.
