PM - lunchtime - Long run at the Forsyth Greenway - mostly flat lots of boardwalks - one sharp climb.  Kept the pace and HR easy enough - with a fast finish in the last 2 miles.  Legs were tired in the last 4-5 miles.

AM - 2 miles with Finn - something's not right with him.  I think he's sick.  So I kept it short.  Came inside and did 10 mins on the treadmill walking at a 15% incline 3 mph.  

PM - Lunchtime treadmill tempo workout.  20 min warm up then 3 miles at tempo - and 10 min cool down.  Using HR to guage effort.  On this treadmill in the gym it was 6:47 pace.  

My doggie has taken a turn for the worse - we brought him to the vet who was puzzled by his condition.  Fevered and dehydrated and 3 of his four paws are red, irritated and by the end of the day they became progressively swollen and weeping.  We brought him home for the night since the fever broke and he had iv fluids in him.  Will sleep in shifts to take him into the ER if his condition worsens.  Vet gave him steroids and antibiotics - thinks he's got some bacterial infection.  Little guy is so sleepy lethargic and sad looking.

PM - lunchtime run - easy - sunny, cool and dry - as you would expect (finally) this time of the year.  I found a new route - which is scenic, though with a good amount of hills - with one lengthy one near the end on Peachtree Dunwoody road which is about 1.2 miles in length with an average grade of 3% but it kicks up to 14% in a couple parts.  (Data by Strava).  I am enjoying Matt Fitzgerald's training log for his build up to Chicago.  He spent 12 weeks with the pros in Flagstaff.  What is interesting is that he is adamant that he's not an elite runner - but better than average - which is why his little experiment resonates with me.  He ended up running 2:39 which was a 2 min PR and about 10 mins faster than his fastest most recent marathon.  Not a bad result at age 46.

PM - lunchtime treadmill workout:  3 x 10 mins at MP with a 1 min rest - 15 mins warm up and about 10 mins cool down.  Good effort in targeted HR zone.  Treadmill's pace had me at 6:31 for the first 2 reps and 6:40 for the last one.

Successful wedding ceremony and reception for my eldest daughter Bradlea yesterday.  No running today - suprisingly drained from teh prior days events - and in need of some rest today.
