PM - lunchtime - treadmill workout.  12 x 400 at 5:50 pace with a 400 rest at 8:40 pace.  Warm up and cool down.  Felt like a solid effort.

AM - 5k with Finn before work - at a slow recovery pace.  As expected, I had a few aches following yesterday's speed work, but nothing of concern.  Ran into Dan who was running in the neighborhood and chatted with him briefly.  School starts back next week for our county, but adjacent counties start this week.  

Heading out of town for 2 weeks tonight - the first part is vacation, the second week is business.  Intended to get a second run at lunchtime, but I had a slew of meetings get crammed into my schedule today when word got out that I was going to be out of the office.  Probably best not to have an additional run anyway.

AM - found my way to the Olympic Stadium this morning but it was closed to the public today. So I just explored at little bit.   

PM - after a day of quite a bit of walking - I went out for a few more miles before dinner.
