Monday, June 11, 2012 9 miles AM: 2 miles easy. PM: 3­mile warmup. 600m time trial. From standing start in 1:13.9. 3­mile cooldown.

I did a 600m time trial like this before the 2008 Olympic Trials, and I wanted to do it again this year. In 2008 I ran the 600m in 1:14.5. After this time trial I was extremely confident that I was in the kind of shape necessary to make the 2012 Olympic Team.

Tuesday, June 12, 2012 7 miles 65 minutes easy.

Wednesday, June 13, 2012 10 miles AM: 45­minute jog + lifting. PM: 30­minute jog.

Thursday, June 14, 2012 6 miles AM: 6 miles easy. PM: Steelhead fishing.

Friday, June 15, 2012 8 miles AM: 3­mile warmup. 8x200m alternating fast­slow. Fast in 24, slow in 28. 3­mile cooldown. PM: 25­minute swim.

Saturday, June 16, 2012 6 miles Easy 40 minutes + hurdle drills.

Sunday, June 17, 2012 8 miles 3­mile warmup. 3x100m strides. 2 ­mile pace run in 9:53. 3x100m strides. 2.5­mile cooldown. Up at Blue River. Felt TERRIBLE! I ran this workout on a beautiful track about an hour east of Eugene in a little town called Blue River. I was surprised by how sore and tired I was, given that the Olympic Trials were only a few days away.

WEEK TOTAL: 54 miles

Monday, June 18, 2012 5 miles 36 minutes easy + lifting

Tuesday, June 19, 2012 8 miles 3­mile warmup. 2x600m @ 1:38. 2x400m @ 62. 1x300m @ 36. 3­mile cooldown. I didn't write down the recovery here, but I would guess that it was 200m walk/jog. A relatively easy workout to prep me for the Trials.

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 0 miles Swam for 12 minutes at Amazon pool. I like to take off the day that is 48 hours before a race just to let my legs really freshen up. I went for a quick swim more to have something to do and pass the time than as a workout.

Thursday, June 21, 2012 4 miles 20 minutes easy + 3x100m strides in spikes.

Friday, June 22, 2012 5 miles 2­mile warmup. Won Olympic Trials prelims in 1:46.8. 2­mile cooldown. This was a fairly straightforward first round. I expected that it would take a sub­1:47 to advance to the semifinals.

Saturday, June 23, 2012 5 miles 2­mile warmup. Finished second in my Olympic Trials semifinal with a time of 1:46.8. 2­mile cooldown. I knew that the top three finishers would advance Automatically, so I was OK with not winning this race and saving my energy. I was a little surprised that this race did not go faster.

Sunday, June 24, 2012 3 miles 24 minutes easy + drills. 10 minutes in Willamette River. This is the off day before the Olympic Trials final. I didn't want to take the day completely off, so I went for a quick jog and iced my legs in the river by my house.

WEEK TOTAL: 30 miles

Monday, June 25, 2012 4 miles AM: 7 minutes easy + drills. PM: 2­mile warmup. Won 2012 Olympic Trials in 1:43.92!! (Watch via YouTube) I was very surprised that I was able to dip under 1:44 in the final and ecstatic that I had made my second Olympic Team.
