PM - had a very good workout on the treadmill this afternoon after returning from a really great trip to Gainesville to visit my daughters and to see the Gators beat the LSU Tigers.  Did a couple of warm up miles and then miles 2-8 were at just below 7 mins per mile and then the next 15k I dropped the pace to 6:26 per mile.  Finished up with a cool down.  Kept the HR under 80% HRR for the 15k which is where I will target for MP in 4 weeks.  Felt very solid and was pleased with this workout.

AM - 4.75 miles easy.  Started off very slowly expecting to be a bit sore, but actually felt better than expected.  Appropriately fatigued in the legs but really not that bad following yesterday evening's workout.  

PM - 8 miles at lunch on a very sticky warm humid day.  Bit of a grind to move my way through this one.

AM - 6.25 miles easy before work.  Really stressful and busy workday yesterday made me decide to rest yesterday evening instead of doing a second run.  Felt significantly better this morning. 

PM - another 6 miles at a comfortable recovery pace with Richie at lunchtime.  He had done a hard workout yesterday and though he said he felt good at the beginning of the run, he was laboring quite a bit in the heat, so we cut it a bit shorter than planned.  In contrast, I felt great.

PM - Had another pretty solid workout on the treadmill today at lunch.  2 mile warm up then 3 x 5k at 6:31 pace with a 1k recovery at 7:20 pace and then a short cool down.  I had thought about doing another 5k rep, but the last two miles or so of the last 5k had me pressing a bit more than I wanted to, so I thought better of it and wrapping things up.

AM - 3 very easy shake out miles this morning.  Little tight in the left calf - good regen run to work out the kinks on a slightly cooler morning for a change.

 

PM - 7.5 pleasant miles at lunch on a somewhat less humid afternoon with Richie.

PM - 8 miles late in the day.  Delaney's cross country team had a meet early this morning at Anclote High School - so I did not run this morning.  The girls took second place in the meet, with their #1 (usually) runner absent today.  Reasonably pleasant running weather today - breezy and lower humidity.
