Last night I was browsing through last year's running log. Mostly to see if I have it in me thus far to meet or exceed my Marathon PR from last year.
I keep my running log in an Excel spreadsheet. Everything is lined up in nice neat columns wherein the math is automatic. This nifty little bag o' bits keeps track of my weekly mileage and carries it over so I know my total mileage for the year. (Of course this happens only if I enter the calculations right.) I also keep notes on the happenings of that day's run.
While looking at the speedwork results, mileage and notes from last year, I discovered that I am so very interesting! Even a year later! Figured I'd share how interesting I am.

10.5 miles in 1:25 / average pace 8:12 / heart rate 152 average, 177 max / Hillene Loop
Frustrated today with my job and want to quit so badly. Took it out on a mini tempo. Felt better afterwards. Frostbit the big toe on my left foot a while back - today is the best it's felt in 10 days, but looks yellow and similar to death. Vented to gang about money. Prolly shouldn't do that.

9 miles / treadmill 2x1 repeats and a fast 1/2 mile / average pace 8ish
S'posed to meet "E" but my dang cough and sour throat kept me up all night - well not all night, but you now. I was going to take the day off but remembered my new fancy-pants spreadsheet and went to the gym...

10 miles in 1:38 / average pace 9:41 / hr 139, 156 max / Provo Loop
Six inches of new snow and it kept dumping! Everyone fell at least once. Me? Twice.

10.5 miles / average pace 8:14 / hr 139, 166 max / hill loop, Skyline and horse loop
Fun run. Wacky, one might say. Ms Mileage and I dressed the same (pink top, white vest, black pants, pink hat). I asked Hillene where she was going to which she said "hell" and I said "you're going home?" Also, Triabry initiated an ecclesastical endorsement by telling us to quit talking pornographic. We were talking about boobs (somehow those pesky ittle animals worm their way into most of our conversations).

January 16, 2008
10 miles in 1:23 / average pace 8:22 / hr 147, 172 max / Provo bench loop
Cold as you know what and windier than you know what. Had trouble keeping up and a dog followed us back. Big wolf looking thing.
