Running intervals 42:10 [5] 4.65 mi (9:04 / mi)
slept:4.5 shoes: Asics Gel-Excite 4 - Blue (#2)

Cut this down to 6x 200m (instead of 8). It's been a big week, and with the Billygoat tomorrow I didn't want this to be a huge workout. Felt good and speedy. Was going for 40 the first 4, then wanted to pick it up on the last two. Last one was flying but wouldn't have been able to do another at that speed.
Splits: 40, 39, 39, 41, 36, 34

Knees feeling painful. Plan is still for 200s tomorrow, but I may not do as many. Depends on how much icing helps.

Orienteering 25:24 [4] 1.91 mi (13:18 / mi)
17c slept:6.0 shoes: Asics Gel-Excite 4 - Blue (#2)

Should have brought my o' shoes, but I didn't want to run the 2 miles here on pavement with them on. Would have helped in the forest though, as some of the hillsides I was on were pretty questionable in my running shoes. Is the difference between regular running shoes and dobbs the same as the jump to metal spikes?
This was the most green I've ever seen Franklin Park, and it made for a good exercise in micro routes. Didn't get a ton of sleep last night, and while I made it through the day ok, I definitely felt it here.

Tuesday May 8 #

4 PM

Running intervals 1:23:33 [5] 9.23 mi (9:03 / mi)
shoes: Asics Gel-Excite 4 - Blue (#2)

Plan was 3x 4x400m, but running home from work put me at 4 miles, and it would have been another mile to get to a track. I didn't want to hit any crazy mileage today, so opted for 3x 4x90sec intervals around the park across the street instead. According to my watch, all of the intervals were between 0.19 and 0.26mi, so it was probably pretty close, especially when considering the uphills/downhills. I felt pretty strong throughout, but it would have been nice to have a running buddy or two. Since my warm up was so long, I had a short and sweet cool down to Stop and Shop for milk and quarters for laundry.

Monday May 7 #

4 PM

Running 52:55 [3] 6.06 mi (8:44 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Guide 10 (Blue)

Wow a longer run with a backpack! Short stop at Bed Bath and Beyond to pick up sheets for the bed in my apartment, then to Rockspot

Climbing 1:05:00 [2]

Did some routes I struggled with a few weeks ago... I'm definitely improving. Finished up by doing the entire wall of V1's, V0's, and VB's. Lot of endurance for that. I definitely wasn't able to do that before, because I wouldn't be able to do them that easily (I think it was 12 total!)
