PM - 10 miles in Palm Harbor - to the Dunedin Causeway and up the Pinellas Trail.  Still have a cold, but figured I better get back on track with my training and do a "long" run - of at least 10 - which turned out reasonably good.  I averaged 7:45 pace - with most of the later miles at 7:30.

Lunchtime run - repetition workout.  8 x 400 @ 81 - full recovery - 10 minute warm up and 10 minute cool down.  Tough workout after kind of being out for the last two weeks.  Working on turn over - pleased with the effort.

PM - Lunchtime run in the gym.  7.0 miles on the treadmill at 7:40 pace.  Kind of a choppy - never got comfortable type of run - hate those.

AM - 5.0 miles easy with 8 striders at the end.  Quite slow going and tight this morning.  Have not really done an early morning run in weeks - so I chalk it up to that and last week's lay off.

Treadmill workout at lunch - 3x 1200 at 4:21 with 4 min recovery.  15 min warm up and 15 min cool down.  Bailed on the last 400 of the last one - just couldn't tough it out.  Give myself a B- on the workout.

Easy run today around noon 7.0 miles.  Still not feeling like I am back in the training groove. Will increase mileage gradually over the next few weeks.
