On the road again

I'm still alive! Survived 2 days of meetings and 3 nights of little sleep and am now ready to go home for the long weekend but here's what's happended so far this week. Travelled to Dartmouth on Monday which is a 6 hr drive and settled in for a long night of preparations for the next day. While I like to be prepared well in advance there was still alot of work needed to get our presentation and final draft document together so we were up till midnight doing that.

Tues am: couldn't sleep up early before 6am and out for a short 4 mile run along the harbor road. No wind but it was a bit chilly that early in the morning and I took it real, real easy. It's funny but the legs still feel heavy and slow, not like I've been tapering down somewhat.

Tues pm: meet up with Anthony, our Cabot Trail team captain for a run around Dartmouth. We did about 5-6 miles along the harbour and then a loop of the 'famous' Maple Street hill which is prominent in the Bluenose marathon. It's a shortish but steep 500m incline that A just attacked. He says that he hasn't been running and is out of shape but A is very strong and seemed to have little problem keeping up with me. We had a great re-connect and discussed running and the plans for our team run in May. Great run and nice to see Anthony again.

Weds: another trying day of meetings that went to 5pm. Then quick change and off running! Did an out and back loop from my hotel on the Dartmouth side, down the the MacDonald bridge, across to Halifax and down to the Casino before turning around. The run called for 2xMP so I did the bridge itself at a harder pace. I think it's about a mile but my splits over and back were 6:50 and 6:17, so either I went too fast or my distance was short (I pick the latter). Overall return time was just a few seconds off for this 8 mile run and felt very good for a change. Maybe it's just the weight of all the work pressure finally off.

Time to head out for home! See you'all later...

Mike, isn't your countdown clock wrong? Looks like it'll go off at 2 PM Boston time.
