PM - 8 miles easy in the early evening.  I had scheduled myself to do a long run today, but knew I was going to be very busy.  Thought that I could get up really early before church and do it - but my body soundly rejected that notion when the alarm clock went off.  So I ended up heading out at the end of a day of church, lunch with friends and seeing my two daughters back off to college for their Spring term and in between work calls - I actually got a very pleasant relaxed run in.  Felt much better than most of last week.

PM - had a really solid feeling 10 mile run at lunch today.  Probably a combination of feeling better from a cold last week, and getting the right dosage/right brand on the iron supplements.  Had gotten this stuff called "EP-NO" which is recommended for runner/endurance athletes.  But I don't think it works as well as some other supplements I bought.  Anyway, the important part is that I felt very good on my last two runs.  Ready for a workout tomorrow.

PM - after work (long stressful day...) good workout.  3 mile warm up; 5 x 1000 @ 10k pace with a 600 rest; 3 mile cool down.  Very solid, felt strong and good and confident.

AM - went out for my first morning run for the new year - (mostly been running midday or evenings) - planning a double for today.   Easy 4 miles.  Almost forgot how nice it is to do a few easy miles in the morning.  Warm, humid day.  

Interesting encounter:  After I was finished and walking down my cul de sac, a car pulls up from behind me and the driver rolls down the window and stops and informs me that the reflective materials I had on my clothing were insufficient and that I really should consider wearing a flashing light and a vest for safety reasons.  I introduced myself to the heavy set fellow who looked a bit like Santa in his beat up old car,  thanked him for his concern and suggestion.  

 

PM - easy 8 miles at lunch on a summer-like day.  Hot humid and uncomfortable.

PM - another solid workout.  Tempo.  3 mile warm up then 5 miles at MP and then 2 mile cool down.  Avg pace 6:44.  Felt very good. Pleased with how I have felt over the last 5 days of running.  Hope it continues.

AM - easy morning 4 miles before work.  Felt very good - enjoyed the run.

PM - 8 miles around the ValPak lake loop and the county dump.  Lovely hot humid and a little stinky.

AM - long run - total of 14 miles.   Fast finish with two of the last 3 miles at MP.  Ran with Richie and Drew in from downtown Clearwater and did the loop over the bridges.  Good conversation, great catching up with Drew who I have not seen in about 6 months.  Pace was moderate for the most part, and then we picked it up at the end.  Richie and I rounded out the run for an extra mile or so at a cool down pace as Drew headed out to get in another 6 miles or so.  Felt very good again on a humid warm morning.
