46¼ miles for the week

M – 4 miles, recovery run, pace 8:03 minutes per mile, 57°F at 4AM
Tu – 5¾ miles tempo run, average pace 6:43 mpm with the measured two miles in 13:18 and 13:15, 65°F at 4AM
W – 5¼ miles with 3x800/400rec, 8:17 mpm overall pace (800s in 3:04, 2:50, and 2:46 but I ran them in lanes 3 and 4 so the actual 800s were about 6 to 8 seconds faster than these times), 66°F at 7PM
Th – slept in
F - 10 miles, 7:41 mpm, overcast 66°F at 4PM
Sa – 7½ miles, easy at 8:01 pace, overcast and occasional light rain, 72°F at 1PM
Su – 13¾, average pace 7:30 mpm, sunny and nice dry air, 68°F starting at Noon. I was able to pick up the pace a little near the end of the run.

I’m still dealing with a scratchy throat and cough. This has been a very busy week at work and I’ve been pretty emotionally drained by the death of my son’s friend. I guess I just wasn’t ready to deal with the loss of another one of those guys. My son is going to be able to go to his funeral up in Ohio.

I am sorry to hear about the loss of your son's friend. Those times are never easy, but somehow we make it through. I am glad to hear that your throat is feeling better. With these drastic changes in weather here in Texas, it's no wonder we all aren't coming down with something. Just a couple of days ago in Houston it was 80, and this morning's low was in the 30's, go figure.
