Carriage hill metro parks. Trails, lots of leaves, roots and some hillage. Nice 64 degree run with a cool wind. Once I loosened up felt pretty good. Quick for trails. 7.5 easy.

I set out to the 'classic' but instead did the 'semi-classic' today.... 10 mile warm up, followed by 8x400m with 50m recoveries. Pace was up and down, as my legs were tired. Pace would be about 6:30 to 6:00 I was going to cool down for a few miles or do 4 more intervals, but it was dark and I was tired. Overall OK though,

Very tired legs. Yesterdays run should not have drained me this much - but maybe combined with the lack of sleep. Oh well, just an easy 6 miler

Windy, Hilly and Slowly.... I have learned I am supposed to blog in 3's. All great trilogies come in 3's as well.

Today was a lesson in math. I learned that 19.5 > 20. Yes, I know, that sounds like silly common core math, but 19.5 was indeed greater. I ran the toughest trails in Montgomery county. Orange loop x6. My legs are killing me. It winds and curves, hills steep and gradual, rocks, tree roots (that the leaves hide), streams and slick mud spots all make for a challenging trail. So while my legs ALMOST feel like I ran a marathon it was a good run. Some boy scouts hiking let me know how many times I lapped them. I hope this run pays some rewards when my body assimilates it.

Cold Classic. 33 Degrees. 10 Mile Warm up and then intervals. I used time today so I would try and give a more consistent effort. 8x2min intervals with 1 min recoveries. Legs are sore so I think that means I did it right? The pace was around high 6's which felt much harder after the 10. 

Hot shower post run. Now you're talking.

AM 56Deg 6 Slow, legs were tired and that is a bit of an understatement. 

PM 51Deg 6 miles cruising pace. Legs were much more alive, but did not push it too much, Mainly because of the exciting Dayton wind advisory. 24MPH sustained with extremely strong gusts. Good run.

36 cool. Wanted to do 20, but pulled a back muscle while getting ready. I ran anyway, but the first few miles were pretty painful. Had to cut it short. Still did 5 at MP, but I need to rest it. I will have to shift training, I hate back pain.

28 as the cold week of running continues, but hopefully ends as we are headed to the inlaws and KY. Should be some warmer temps. Thankfulness and good food awaits!

At the inlaws in KY 45 and a nice brisk run up the hills/mountains. They boarder the Appalactions. So when I say brisk, that is the effort, not the time. I was digging deep and gasping pretty hard core.
