7.5 miles on the treadmill while Abigail was swimming.

I did some leg presses afterwards with massively heavy weights to develop power in my quads.   I may have ruptured myself.

Kramer's college visits began today.Today and tomorrow at BYU, this weekend he's going to Georgetown, next weekend is the mighty Wisconsin Badgers (NCAA runners-up last year, champs in 2011).

6.25 mile "treadmill fartlek" which included 9 X 1/4 mile at 6 minute pace. Speedy!

Had a good day at practice. The boys are pretty excited about our trip down to Arizona for Nike Southwest. We spent a lot of time in practice watching old videos of past races on runnerspace and the team is really motivated. I've been trying hard to understand elements of sports psychology that have eluded me in the past and my conversations with Pat Tyson last week have caused me to evaluate a lot of what I do.

If you aren't growing you're dying.

AM: 6.25 miles in the early morning darkness with my team. Stayed mostly on the track and around the school to avoid traffic in the dark. Looking forward to next week when we will have some light on our AM runs.

PM: 6 miles split between the stairmaster and the treadmill. Some strength training after, lots of leg presses, because Jay Johnson (who hasn't blogged for a couple months!) says they are magic.

I like roasted, salted, pumpkin seeds.

6.5 dark morning miles with the team in 52 minutes. It seemed like we were running faster.

This will be it for the day with a track workout after school and halloween tonight.

PM: A couple miles of walking around the neighborhood eating candy. Abby was some sort of zombie princess and Andy was Chipper Jones. Great fun with the Hartford Street kids and parents.

12.5 miles at Liberty Park with my team minus Kramer plus James Moore. Kramer's on his way to DC for his visit to Georgetown.

Had them do 2.9 tempo miles in the middle and the group ran 17:04. Not bad!
