I was tired this morning...legs very unresponsive. Like a sponge, that is what I felt like I was running on. Did some strides after 5 miles, trying to boost myself a bit. Not much good, I could run the strides at a normal 5K pace by the legs were just tired me thinks. I have not slept as much the last 2 days so I will be getting some good sleep tonight I hope!

A little warm this morning, but at least I had a little more sleep than I had been getting lately. 4 miles at base 8:20, then 6x1mile @ 7:15ish with 60 sec recoveries, with another 1.5 mile base to finish up. Long day of work, going to finish up some projects!

Decent morning to run. Nice and easy today. Decided not to wear my watch so I wouldn't be tempted to push myself.

Funny how our perception changes... when it is the dog days I would love to run in 75 degrees and 90% humidity - that would be a treat off the very humid and hot days, but today (after a few weeks of 50-60 degree running) 75 felt way too warm. 6 base miles and then some quick strides (8x20sec @ 6/mile pace w/40sec recovery and my legs feel the sharpest they have all week now. Hope that is a good sign for tomorrows long run.

Good run today...

1-16 7:43/mile

16-20 7:30/mile

Avg 7:40/mile

My goal was to finish stronger than I started and I did that. My goal marathon pace is 7:30-7:40 and although I did not set out to run MP today (except the last 4, that was planned) , it kinda happened. The first mile was 8:20 and each mile after just kept getting faster. So I am a happy camper :)
