PM: 7.75 miles on the treadmill in 65'

It was warm in there. Megan opened the window. She also did some video so I could analyze my stride. Felt kinda blah. No doubt the weather. 40 and overcast all the time with periods of rain.

PM: 8 miles, averaged 8:08

Did 25' easy, 22' easy to moderate progression, 18' easy.

I felt really quite sluggish and crappy, which is okay given that I have felt really good on my runs lately. The air has been very damp (70% humidity). 40 degrees feels very cold. I've been wearing a hat and gloves, which I wouldn't formally do until it gets decently into the 30s.

Night: AIS hamstring. Need to get back into my stretching routine

Fartlek

30' up. 5 x 2' on/off, 10 x 1' on/off, 10 x 30" on off. 20' down. 10k effort on the 2', 5k on the 1', and 2 mile on the 30".

Paces were pedestrian but relational to other efforts and paces I have been running for half marathon and marathon effort. So the effort was probably right. It seemed right. Air has been very damp, making it feel much colder than it is.

Aerobic Builder

30' up, 40' aerobic builder, 30' down.

Averaged 6:44. Splits 6:57, 6:50, 6:47, 6:40, 6:36, 6:30 (for just shy of a mile .94). Warm up and cool down were at or below 8' pace. Not that I care about warm up or cool down pace but it felt slow and yet my legs were moving okay. A sign of increasing fitness even if I'm currently slow.
