Okay - so, I got a good night's sleep last night and took last week extremely easy.  was still feeling the hangover a bit, but got going after about 6 or 7 slow miles and getting the heart rate up (slowly).  Finally got a planned workout and did... okay.  3x4mi.MP - 27:24, 26:25, 26:31 - I'm happy with anything close to what I what I was supposed to do today.

21.27mi. total - 2:39:10

PM: started at 5:30pm - 70 degrees!!  moderate 4mi. was already hurting I started off depleted on this run drained going in to the 5mi.  Did loops around Mill Race Park for the hard part - alot of people out on the nice day, so that kind of kept me going: 7:37, 7:24, 7:12, 7:37, 6:31, 6:16, 6:16, 6:13, 6:20, at this point I'm praying the water fountains are turned on at the park (nope) - I was done.  I seriously had to walk half the way home on the "cooldown", 8:11, 8:58, 9:57.

12.28 mi. total - 1:31:07

Off after yesterday - 2nd workout left me depleted to say the least.  Left leg injuries not too bad today.  10 miles on the bike trainer moderate effort - 30 minutes.  Broke a sweat and stayed off the feet.  2 easy days of running Thurs. and Fri. and a hilly half on Saturday in Bloomington coming up.

Hoosier Half Marathon this morning in Bloomington.  upper 30s and overcast with a slight chilly wind.  Quaff race with a big group in attendnce today.  Our Half group stuck together for the first half of the race and started breaking up throughout the rest of it.  We also 2 of our top guys run the 5k and go 1-2 in 14:59, and 15:2x.  Our group was a little slower :).  We started with hanging back a little bit in the begninng, but it wound up being slow up hill and even it out on the downhill.  Target was around 6:10 average, but was all over the palce.  This was the hilliest half marathon I have ever run, by far. 

6:21, 08, 19, 17, 5:55, 08, 02, 03, 18, 30, 24, 29, 29, and 26 seconds for the last ? I have a GPSed distance of 13.07...

So it looks like  was good through about 9 miles.  Good prep for Boston, I guess.
