AM - 3.5 miles in the morning before church on the golf course.

 

PM - drove up to Lake Toxaway, NC to meet Richie and to stay at his friend, Mike's place on the lake.  Running camp of sorts.  Did 9 miles around part of the lake.  Good run and nice catching up with Richie and meeting Mike for the first time.  Long run tomorrow morning.

AM - got up early with Richie and Mike and ventured out for a long run around Lake Toxaway.  Very scenic with lots of rolling hils and a couple of climbs.  Pretty tuckered out afterwards, but a good run with the guys.  Headed back home afterwards.

AM - 3.5 miles easy on the golf course with Finn.  Legs appropriately a bit fatigued from the hilly long run yesterday.  Used the night time PF splint (evidently properly this time) and had really no discomfort in the left heel this morning. 

PM - only a brief window of time at lunch to squeeze in 5 miles on the treadmill.

PM - lunchtime workout on the treadmill.  6 x 5:00 @ HM pace with a 4 minute rest.  15 min. warm up and a mile cool down.  Felt pleased with the way I felt and the pace I was able to consistently maintain in the HR zone of 75-80% HRR - which was between 6:31 and 6:35 mpm.

AM - 4.25 miles easy on the golf course with Finn this morning before work.  Pleasant weather today, with much lower dp and humidity.  Saw some of the meteor shower remnants before sunrise.

PM - 8.25 miles at lunchtime outside today.  Warm, but not nearly as hot and humid as it has been - made for a nice run in the area around the perimeter.

AM - 3.0 miles easy on the golf course in a light rain this morning before work.

PM - lunchtime workout on the treadmill.  2 x 4 miles at MP with a 400 rest.  I was actually planning to do a full recovery between reps, but felt as though I should resume after 400 meters, so I did.  Pleased with my effort and HR - which although it crept up a bit very gradually at the end - was in a good range for me.
