Slept Like The Dead!
For whatever reason, today I started to wake around eleven, and just fought getting up for a while. Finally got up at around 11:45 so I could go out and water the melon plants. Have about 4 melons left fighting to ripen before the plants succumb to their usual september death. Didn't have a great melon year in quantity, as I tried three different hybrid crenshaws and cantelopes, but the quality was magnificent. Don't know what I will try next year.
Did a 9K run last thursday with 6 bye two minute intervals with two minute recoveries. Of all the Billat intervals, I still like the 30-30's the best, and feel with the short recoveries, they are the toughest. On friday I did 8K easy, did the gym on saturday, and then yesterday I did 10K with 20 minutes of continuous threshold, and today I will do another 8K easy. Then it will be alternating gym and easy 8K days with a few short sprints until I race next Sunday. Hope I can push this old sled along at 9 minute mile pace that morning. Then I will hit Barnes and Knobles for breakfast, the Tucan store to get a case of coconut water and some gourmet goodies, and then I will buy my bride some teriyaki by the college and head home. That is the plan anyway.....
