Kind of a planned day of rest - though I felt fine - may not have needed it.

AM - 3 miles easy with Finn before work.  Delaney heads back to college today - Tracy is helping move her into the sorority house.  Bradlea's students have their first day of the fall term today as well.  

PM - 5 miles on the treadmill at lunchtime.  Things are feeling good regarding my foot.  Although yesterday I banged one of my toes on a stool in our basement - and it is completely bruised up today.  Not too impactful in terms of running at all.

PM - treadmill workout - 2 x 2 miles at HM pace with a 600 rest.  Mile warmup and short cool down.  Pretty decent effort.  Initially I was hesitant to identify HM pace as anything faster than I had run at Des News about 10 days ago - so started out at 7:30 pace - but moved to 7:15 then 7 then 6:45 pace for the last mile all of which seemed manageable.  HRM wasn't working - but going by feel - this was fine.  I think part of my slowness this summer has been a bit of a strength deficit in the foot due to the injury, but that's really close to resolved now, and with it, my pace has improved.

Note to self:  make certain to inspect the running shorts I pull out of my drawer in the morning in the dark and stuff in my gym-bag before I head to work to make sure they are mine, because it could be that someone mistook my daughter's running shorts for mine when they put them in my drawer... result:  embarassingly short shorts for today's run at lunchtime.  :-)

PM - a little over 3 miles with Finn on the golf course after work.

AM -  3 miles on the golf course in the dark with Finn before work this morning.

PM - second workout of the week (a little nervous about doing two in a week but the intensity has not been high and I don't feel like I am forcing anything or being reckless) - this was 5 miles at MP on the treadmill - which to my surprise was at 6:53 pace at the proper HR for MP and I felt solid.
