10 slow easy + standard ab routine, ab bench, and back machine.

Felt really dead today.  Mostly due to dehydration and the fact that my legs were really sore after that drill/plyo session yesterday.  Normally I would have went to the pool and done 6 after work but today is my late day at work so I would rather go to the pool a different day.  My 890s are about done.  I'll wear them until 400 then they are out.

5 easy then 2x100 m strides. Light drills.  Running a race tomorrow. 890s are done. I tossed them.  The shoe life really goes down when you get them completely soaked 2 or 3 times while running.

My race was cancelled today!! 10 months without a race and the first one I sign up for  to test my fitness was cancelled due to flood waters in West Potomac Park.  I wanted to do that one since I figured it would be an easy $100 for the win since the local Ethiopians will be at the Capitol Hill Classic 10K tomorrow. I hope they reschedule at least so I can get my entry fee's worth out of it.  

Anyway, I decided to run the CHC 10K tomorrow since my roomate is also running it. I don't know how my fitness will stack up for 10K...I've done the miles but barely any 10K specific work at all. It will be a good fitness test. In other news I felt amazing today, just like I thought I would for a race. I just hope it holds over one more day.  I obviously did not hit my mileage this week due the race cancellation. I wil count this as my down week.  Afterall, I just went three straight weeks at 70. My NB 890v4. feel amazing.
