AM - got out early for a long run before the day heated up - 14 miles. I think I was asleep for the first 5-6 miles pace-wise - good move though in terms of staying cooler.

AM - 4.5 miles with Finn and neighbor Dan again this morning.  Dan is driving his eldest back to school this morning at UVA for the start of her second year.  I kinda miss those days a bit now that my children are well past that age.  

PM - 6 miles - Fartlek workout on a soccer field near my office  6 x 2 mins at 5k to 10k pace with a 1 min rest. Tough but good workout
