Stayed home sick from work today - this bug is hanging around in my stomach... Slept in til about 9a, ate some IHOP breakfast to see if it would stick.  It did - thank god.  Let that settle and went for an easy 2 mi. w/ dog (who has also been sick) around noon.  Waited around the house until about 4p and decided to put in some kind of workout.  The current goal is a 17:30 5k in one of the upcoming local races.

Any suggestions on better speed building exercises from anybody reading this?

here's what i did this afternoon (and have been completing similar for the last couple weeks):

2mi. jog to local track w/ strides,

4x200m w/ 200m rec. - 38, 36, 35, 34,

2x400m w/ 400m rec. - 74, 73,

1mi. jog back toward the house,

last 1mi. - 5:55

6 mi. total - 48:00

easy 2 mi. after dinner w/ dog - yahh!  he finally pooped!! :)

4.5 mi. trail running in Brown County State Park.  I've been having a pain in my left calf/arch of foot that's been nagging for a couple of days.  It really only hurts when I'm hitting the ground hard (downhills).  This week needs to be low mileage and somewhat of a recovery week.  My bike should be fixed tomorrow or today.  Trail running, biking, and shorter distance, faster intervals for the next week and a half.

4.5 mi. in beautiful park trails - 1.5 mile around Ogle Lake (trail #7), 3 mi. out and back on Taylor Ridge? Trail (#9)

45:02 to complete this distance, but it felt mod/difficult with all the elevation changes and misc. movement that accompanies trail running.

4.5 mi. to Bike Shop - via SR 11 - 29:34 (6:34 min./mi.) to pick up bike,

6.8 mi. bike back to house - via SR 46 - 23:44 (17mph),

1 mi. w/ dog - 9:02 CD

Oddly enough, the left foot/arch/shin thing felt great running the MP, but hurt when I slow jogged the cool down.
