Sunday 16 MLR <b>– The Redbud Classic, Oklahoma City</b><br><br>
Weekly Mileage Plan – 39 miles.<br><b>Weekly Mileage Actual – 35 miles</b><br><br>
This week’s goal – Train injury free, so I need to pay special attention to my right shin. Keep the ice coming. Again, I will have to re-arrange my schedule which seems to have been the case throughout this training session. The main goal is to have a solid LR and maybe a MP run at Red Bud.<br><br><b>Weekly Summary – Wednesday, my right shin flared up again and throbbed all evening, not painful, but uncomfortable. So, I decided to skip Friday’s run. Saturday’s MLR was slow and sluggish but considering my shin: slow was a good thing for the body but not the mind. I considered skipping the 10K race on Sunday as I was concerned that I would not be able to hold back. I told myself to run the race slow, but none the less I ran much faster that I would have recommended. It turned into another “almost” all out effort. Luckily my shin feels fine today.</b>

I'm putting on a race on Sunday, so my whole week is a mess. I would call this a recovery week, only it isn't likely to be restful at all.<br><br>
Mon - AM 5 ez, PM 5 ez <b>(AM 5 ez, PM 4 ez)</b><br>
Tues - AM 5 ez, PM 9 pace <b>(AM 5 ez, PM 8 pushing measuring wheel)</b><br>
Wed - AM 5 ez, PM 5 ez <b>(AM 5 ez, PM 13.2 at 6:19 pace)</b><br>
Thurs - 17 solid <b>(AM 5 ez, 7:05 pace, PM missed run)</b><br>
Fri - AM 5 ez, PM 5 ez <b>(AM 5 ez, PM missed run)</b><br>
Sat - 6 x 1 mile <b>(5 ez, 7:00 pace)</b><br>
Sun - 5 ez <b>(5 ez)</b><br><br>
Total 77 miles <b>(60.2 actual)</b><br><br><b>Week Summary -</b> Putting on a race ended up being a huge amount of work, and completely messed up my training the last 4 days of the week. I've come down sick, which doesn't help. I'm going to try to crank it back up for 2 weeks before starting to taper for Eugene.

Now that I've done another update, you can see why. I though I might have a schedule problem the next day, so I just wanted to get in something decent. As it turns out, I did have a problem the next day and only did 5 instead of 17 miles.
