training progress...and regression

Over the last week or two I'd managed to get my stair time over 27 floors down to 2:13.0. although I've lost my sense of pace - I guess starting too fast and fading at the end. I'd also got my 5k time for 2009 down to 17:14, with negative splits of 5:36, 5:35, 5:33, and :30 for the last 200 meters (5 minute pace). Today was a step backwards, as I ran slower than my last two times up the stairs, which would have been fine if I hadn't been pegging my heart-rate to run even that fast (2:19.2). To top it off, my weight vest was stolen from the stairwell. Those degenrates are going to get some bad juju!!! Hopefully, next week will be better!

Tomorrow is always another day... And I hope I can see you on Sunday at the race, even if you don't run. I miss working with you~

i plan on being there for morale support (but not running)...and because Dave and I are splitting a special brew afterwards!
