August 18, 2011 – It was a warm day during lunch hour. I ran out easy on my own for 1h’15m’39s’ approx. 10.1 miles.
August 19, 2011 – I took that day off from running. I figure I ran a 23-miler and a 10-miler within five days; it would be good idea to get my body recover, then I can ready for my Saturday’s morning long run and Comus XC 5K.
August 20, 2011 – I woke up early and got myself out of door before 07:00 and started run down Valley Trail around 07:40. I ran mostly on the trail, but ran about 3 miles on Ross Dr & Beach Dr on the return trip - http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5025234. I logged about 12.5 miles that morning for total of 1h’31m’31s’ and felt good. I stretch some, drank some G, went home, down some food, took a nap, and then drive up 270 to Comus. I arrived to race site around 16:30; after some brief conversation with some friends, I team up with M Hoon ran a 17:00 warm up down the race course – it is hilly course. Time rolled around to 17:25, I caught up lovely Ms. C Howard, it was very nice to see her; on the race course, I also saw several Pacers along with A. Dumm ready to take the crown.
Around 17:30, I charged out with 25 or so people down the grass field and I felt soreness on my legs. I was suffering after the morning long run and warm humid air; but manage to get to finished line at 22:00 flat. I ran roughly total of 17.7 miles for the day. It was enough for me; I grab a beer and ice cream on each hand, chated with friends on the soft grass… Good time!!!
August 21, 2011 - I was beat when I got home the night before and slept in late till late-morning. I took anther day off from running.
I ran about 38 miles last week; it is very low mileage week, but I think is okay, since I had several key hard runs and races. Time is running out – less than five weeks away till Akron Marathon, it is gonna be great…
August 22, 2011 - I got out of work early, went to an appointment, and have extra time afterward. I decided to drive down to the Line and ran on Valley Trail. I ran for 41:30 approx 5.6 miles.
