Workout Notes 2008 Week 26
I started this week the same as last, with an easy 5.4 mile run from the gym at lunch time. Tuesday was the last track meet at Lukes. I was scheduled for the mile. Don Lucas decided to run a Masters heat for the mile. It was questionable whether I should have run with that group or with a faster open heat. But I saw Bob Smeby calling me out, so I figured what the heck. Plus Don was running this as the third heat - that provided me an opportunity to race and get over to help with Marissa's soccer team. Bob told me that he was hoping to beat 5:12. Since I had run 5:11 two weeks ago, we would have a good go of it. There were only four of us in the heat. When the gun went off, I got right on Bob's shoulder. The pace seemed a bit fast. Sure enough we hit the 440 in 71, waaaay too fast. Bob!! Either exuberance had kicked in, or his plan was to kill me. I was not sure which it was. I kept hanging on his shoulder and we came through the 880 in 2:30. Better. We had the wind to our back on the backstretch so with 700 to go, I relaxed my stride a bit and I moved ahead of Bob. I sensed that he did not go with me so while continuing to relax, I worked on my turnover. We came through 1320 in 3:51. With 300 to go and the wind to my back I pushed hard. Bob was still not with me, but the dude is dangerous, so gave it everything I had for the last 100. Bob was a couple of seconds behind. This was a great race, and Don Lucas complemented me on my effort!

With the end of Tuesday night track meets, there was no Saturday speed session. Instead I did a long easy distance run of 68 minutes about 9 miles. Sunday Vic, MikeK and I were going to head up to McKinney, but there were some storms, so I concocted a ride from Allen to Lucas, to Wiley - down the dam road, to 78, to 205 south to Rockwall, back to Richardson and Plano and then back.
