Long travel day - and extremely early start - so no run.

AM - 7 aerobic paced miles in the morning before work.  

PM - 5 miles on the treadmill.  Using the HRM for the last week or so, I noticed a clear improvement - at least today - as associated with pacing at a given HR. (Same treadmill, same HR - 30 seconds per mile faster than 10 days ago).  I think this may be due to the longer mileage - single runs I did for the last 10 days (as opposed to doubles per day of shorter individual mileage).  This could also be due to me keeping the runs in the "aerobic" category and getting myself back into balance (ph).  Or it could just be that I had a good day of running today.  :)

AM - 4 miles on the golf course with Finn this morning before work.

PM - 6 miles on the treadmill after work. Really tired today. Kind of a grind - maybe would have been better not to have run.

AM - 4 miles in the morning. 

PM - 10 miles on the treadmill in the afternoon at my house.  Has this feature for target heart rate.  Comes with a strap and you program a max HR target and the duration and the max and min speed - and the machine adjusts the speed as you run to keep you at that target HR.  End up going slower as you get dehydrated and fatigued -  but it makes for a pretty comfortable workout if you find the right target HR for an aerobic effort.
