Weekly Log 3-Mar to 9-Mar-2014

It looks like a low mileage week this week with constant work issues around the clock following a major trading system migration.  Anyhow, that might be OK as I'm probably supposed to taper a bit for a half-marathon.  Does anyone really taper for a half, or only for a full?

Monday:  0

Tuesday:  3
3 miles seems paltry and easy, until you see the terrain and effort.  After a while, I got into a rhythm (albeit about a 9:30 pace), but had to stop a few times to catch my breath.  Exhausting.
Blue-blazed Pequot Trail was really tough
going uphill in deep crusty snow
(started at ball field in Poquetanuck)

What in the blazes (pun intended) is this?
Turns out it contains a log book, and
no one had left an entry in over a month;
can't imagine why with the conditions.

Wednesday:  8
Morning:  Easy run roads out to Watch Hill, with a pensive run back home along the beach.  I probably take for granted being able to easily run from my home to the ocean.  I won't be moving anytime soon to interior NC or elsewhere inland for that matter.
Evening:  Bailed out on a planned workout with FiveK for more work fun.  :(

Thursday:  0
Another zero :(.  Crazy work day consumed my time, energy, and motivation.

Friday:  15
Morning:  8 mile pond loop.  23 degrees.  Since I didn't make our Workout Wednesday session this week, I at least threw down 4 x 800, with a 400 recovery on each.  Three on the road:  2:44, 2:45, 2:47, and the final one ended up being completely on the sand while dodging waves, for a 3:06.
Afternoon:  7 miles with FiveK.

Saturday:  6
Beach and road run with Mike B, FiveK, and Lulu.  Warm!

Sunday:  18
Ocean's Run Half Marathon.  Write up shortly.

Weekly mileage totals:
Run:  50
