AM - had a nice run along the Mississippi River this morning in St. Paul, MN, just a shade under 9 miles.  I ran along this same trail about 3 years ago, in the month of October, and it was at least 50 degrees colder than today with zero vegetation on trees and the windy whipping around at high velocity.  Today was very pleasant, in the low 60's and dew point under 50 - and the trail was under a canopy of trees at several points.  Even encountered a flock or a gaggle (or whatever the proper nomenclature is) of wild turkeys.

AM - 3.5 miles on the golf course this morning.  Vibram footed.

PM - Lunchtime treadmill workout.  10 x 3:00 min at HM/15k pace with 2 min jog - warm up and short cool down.  Good solid effort - pace was right at 6:30 per mile pace - and HR indicative of a sub-AT effort generally in the last 60 to 80 seconds of each rep.

PM - had an early flight to Pittsburgh - so no AM run.  Headed out before dinner and ran along 2 of the three rivers - on a trail along the Ohio and Allegeny - in front of PNC Park (ahead of an evening game for the Pirates) and Heintz field.  Please running weather - for an easy 10 miles.

AM - 10 miles along a few of the riverfront trails in Pittsburgh.  Felt a bit off this morning - so it was kind of a grind.

AM - 3.5 miles easy on the golf course before work this morning.

 

PM - Lunchtime workout.  On the treadmill - uptempo for 6 miles with the last mile at MP - with about 1.5 miles warm up.  Averaged about 7:05 for the first 5 miles and then 6:49 for the last mile.  Decent effort - HR was a bit higher than I would have wanted for this pace - but the gym temp was higher than normal, and I was a bit dehydrated to begin the workout.

AM - 3.5 miles easy. Then 2 miles of walking with Finn. 

PM - 10 miles easy on the treadmill in the afternoon.  Helped my daughter get her classroom ready for her first teaching job - students start on Monday at Milton High. She's teaching AP World History.  As I walked out of the school building the boys and girls cross country teams were doing a post run stretching session.  I was impressed to see easily over 100 runners.  Cannot recall ever seeing that many on teams when I was running in high school.
