This was a good week in terms of running goes. I was able to bounce back from last weeks injury and with what seemed like little effort put up one of my highest mileage weeks. I don't think I am at 100% just yet as I still have trouble sprinting. This week I decided I wasn't going to force anything. If I only felt like running a little I would and if I went longer so be it.
The Tuesday and Thursday afternoon runs are a nice change. I was fortunate to be in town to take my daughter (9yrs old) to her "Girls Running Strong" practice. (They run about 2-3 miles in preparation for a 5k next month). While she is at practice I can run through Kit Carson park.
Monday - 6:30am 10miles 1:21:11 (8:08min pace) felt pretty good for not running most of last week. Hamstring let me know it was there every so slightly
9pm - 20min in Sauna at 145degrees.
Tonight I skipped to adult soccer game. I did participate in the GU11 practice a little in some of the drills and running.
Tuesday - 4:30pm 5miles (11:26min pace), 9:30pm 30min Sauna
Wednesday - 7am 5.3miles 51:05 (9:44min pace)
Thursday - Two runs today. 7am 5miles 43:11 (8:15min pace) followed by 15min in the sauna, 4:30pm 5miles 52:30 (10:18min pace) with Kutting Weight Suite on. Second sauna session at 9:30pm for 30min at 150degrees.

Friday - Rest Day
Saturday - 27 miles , 5:41:40 (12:47min pace), Sauna - 15min 150degrees. Ran to meet one of my Badwater Crew members, Jason Obriek, at Double Peek park. We did a nice 7 mile loop with about 1000 feet of accent and decent before I ran back home.

Sunday - 2:30pm 10.1 miles 1:42:41 (10:10min pace), Sauna 30min at 150 degrees. Today was a nice recovery run after the mothers day morning.
Today I also decided I was really going to focus on a new low-carb diet. I began reading the book I received; "The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance," when I restocked my supply of Vespa. I should get though it pretty quick. I hope to
