Off. It was getting late and I needed to get home to make dinner. I'm switching to two half marathons this spring. I don't have enough miles behind me and thinks just aren't consistent enough for marathon training.

PM: 12 miles on the treadmill.

Mostly easy to moderate. Did a quarter mile pickup at 5:30 toward the end. It felt hard and so did 9 MPH to finish out most of the last 30'

+ light core and some pull-ups
