In other news, I'm making some fitness gains, and I'm very happy about it -- this was a solid week.
T: 1.52 @ 12:25; 9X30sprint/90sRI (1.5 @ 16ish AVG, with typical 30 sec @ low 8/mile); 1 @ 12:15; 0.44 walk
W: Track Club: 1.29 @ 12:41; 0.4 w/u drills; Cooper Test: 1.21 miles @ 9:55/mile; 0.11 walk; 0.57 jog c/d @ 12:26; 0.22 walk TOTAL: 3.8 miles
Th: 4.36 @ 11:30; 0.26 walk
F: 0.62 @ 12:30; 3.58 walk -- terrible showing, but sometimes you just have to give yourself credit for heading out. I had a bunch of talking/ranting about family drama to manage, which I did while walking. Something is better than nothing.
Sa: 4.43 @ 13:39 pace AVG. jog 1.5 miles @ 12:22; strength intervals 2X0.75 (7:12; 7:23) Then 0.11 @ 9:55; walk and talk to mom; 0.16 @ 9:29; 0.27 jog; 0.55 walk home -- I was very happy about the 2 strength intervals.
Su: 8 miles long with E2 in Monterey (0.64 walk; 8 @ 12:39 including walk and water breaks; 0.72 walk) -- this is the best long run I've done in at least 14 months. I was super happy and proud of this (not the least because if was the morning after a night of partying at the Aquarium).

Thursday's run was one of those great medium efforts where I felt strong. And Saturday's strength intervals were awesome. But of course, Sunday's long run with E2 was the best - she definitely pulled me along to go faster than I would have without her.

Progress feels so great: 30.36 mile week, and most of it running. Onward.
