A hectic week. More training at work. This has been the hardest week so far. I have actually been having to study and bring material home just to keep caught up. They're trying to cram 3 weeks worth of material into 1 week. Subject matter: Nuclear theory and sub-atomic physics. Everything you ever wanted to know about prompt and delayed neutrons. Yeah, sounds exciting to me too. The point being is that this week has been a blur and I'm ready to get back into my routine.

What better way to get back into my routine than with hill work! It had been a couple of weeks since I had done any serious speed or hill work so I picked the day before my exam, hoping to clear my mind. I guess it worked because I don't remember anything about any of the material :)

3 mile warm up

hill repeats
6 x 0.2 (1.2 milesup hill, 1.2 miles downhill, 2.4 total)

1 1/2 mile cool down.

total mileage about 7 miles. I felt really good. The repeats didn't beat me up and I held the same pace for all the repeats. I'm looking forward to my long run this Saturday. Wish me luck on my exam today.

Good luck on the exam...just makes my stomach cringe to think about physics...which explains why I'm an accountant and not a scientist :)
