Contrary to common belief, I did complete my run today. Since it was 28 degrees this morning I decided to postpone (not procrastinate) and run in the evening. I did have a meeting at 7:00 pm so I had to rush to the HS track and get going immediately. Today was Repeats and as usual I was wondering if I could actually complete the workout at the prescribed paces. Some way I managed and actually felt better this time since my recoveries in between were almost all jogging. On the first one I got a little carried away, I really wasn’t looking at my watch. On the second one I throttled back a little too much but on the others I felt pretty consistent.

I do think I’m coming down with something as my head is somewhat stopped up, I seem to have some congestion in my chest and last night, after I finished running, I felt really achy like I mght have the flu. It may be cedar fever that’s bothering me L

Matthew 8:14-16

14 Jesus went to Peter's home, and there he saw Peter's mother-in-law sick in bed with a fever.15 He touched her hand; the fever left her, and she got up and began to wait on him.

 16 When evening came, people brought to Jesus many who had demons in them. Jesus drove out the evil spirits with a word and healed all who were sick.

Nice procrastination run! 5:58 pace is cruising! Good job, get healthy!

From Dave S on Tue, Nov 29, 2011 at 18:24:24 from 4.253.96.164

You get that cold down there? Nice job hitting the paces. Looks like a good comeback from that bad run last week.

From Steam8 on Tue, Nov 29, 2011 at 20:59:43 from 166.70.55.77

WOW...what a workout! Glad you were able to do it and in 28 degrees! How did your fingers and toes hold out? You are getting so fast!! I wish I was as motivated as you are!

From SlowJoe on Tue, Nov 29, 2011 at 21:11:42 from 74.195.74.62

Dang that is fast, 5:48 avg is awesome for 1000s. You could probably crush a great 5K right now. Nice running.

JG...No procrastination here :-)

Thanks Dave!

Steam, Joe's the one who ran in the 28 degree weather...I'm the wimp that waited until 5:30 in the evening when it was 50 degrees.

Thanks Joe, I do want to find one and run it soon :-) I'm still hoping to break 20:00.

From derhammer on Thu, Dec 01, 2011 at 11:26:58 from 192.156.110.33

Nice splits! Agree with Joe, you should be able to run a great 5k time. Don't get too much of a PR, though, because you will need to adjust all of your training paces down, too. LOL! :-)

From I Just Run on Thu, Dec 01, 2011 at 11:48:45 from 67.79.11.242

Good point DH,

All of the RFRL program is based on your 5K time and I'm not even training at a Sub-20 5K right now :-(
