AM - very early run on the treadmill before business travel to Flint, Michigan and back today.  As a result I was pretty slow getting started - expected more miles, but was short on time. 

My new house has a steamshower in it.  Never used one before.  Tried it out on the weekend.  I don't get it.   Get into a humid/hot steamy room for 20 minutes after you workout??  Is that supposed to make me feel good and relaxed?  People kept telling me I will really like it.  Maybe I am doing it wrong?

AM - just about 4 miles - easy before work.

PM - 7 miles after work on a route that was seemingly uphill all the way even though it was an out and back loop.

PM - tempo + workout.  2 mile warm up then 5 at or above tempo on the treadmill with a short cool down.  Ran reasonably well - seeing some slight progress in the last few weeks.
