I have spent the last few weeks getting work straightened out to change my schedule. I have had a few meetings and introductions and I am ready to coach my first practice. It is not getting here fast enough. I have been getting my body ready to run that many days a week. The most I have ever ran in one week is 4. This will be a step up when I go to 6 days a week. Since this is a training blog I will stick to this topic. Here is how my week went:
Tuesday-Run 4 miles.
Thursday-Run 5 miles
Friday-Run 4 miles
Saturday-Honoring my commitment to shannon. 45 mile bike ride and 4 mile run. The bike was out to Jean, NV and back. The run began with a summer rain shower that was so awesome. Then a 4 mile run. Made me real bummed this kind of effort is going to a race but it is what it is. I felt awesome today.
Sunday-Long run scratched. Sully has been sick and we took him to the vet. Just a bowel irritation at this point. I was going to go 8-10.
This week I hope to run monday-saturday. We will see how things go. Quote:

Our first meet is at Reno our rivals to the North. Bring em on! I started reading Daniels' Running formula. I heard it is a running coaching must.
