Warm day (55º) and took advantage of it. Afternoon run, base 12 with 11x30s striders. 3k-5k pace. Started those after 4 miles and then my legs felt much better the rest of the run. Warm again tomorrow, should be a good weekend!

40º and windy. I was sick over the weekend. 3rd time since September and I am not sure why. I usually don't get sick but maybe once a year. Finally felt well enough (aka could breathe) to get a run in. Back to the beginning. 8:22 ap, best 7:28.
