PM: 11.5 miles, averaged 7:51. Did 10 x 2 minutes w/ 2-minute recovery jogs. Averaged 5:30 for those, which wasn't too bad considering I have 0 speed right now. Effort was under 5k at this point I would say. I just went hard and tried to hang on. Started to smell the first hint of colors and figured I was probably chewing up my o2 toward the end.

I turned my pace off, and taped my boo-booed Garmin 610, which worked fine.Very wet and slushy.

NW Philly LR Loop - 20 miles very easy.

My stomach wouldn't let me get into typical long run pace. Time on my feet I guess.

Day off.

I was going to take Sunday off, but I have some work to get through this morning and I woke up later than planned. 33 days on, so that's a decent stretch for getting back into things. Might get on the bike to help flush the legs later if I can get on before getting back from campus and making dinner.

AM: 11.25 miles easy w/ a throwdown mile at mile 10 @ 5:30/5:31 (so, mostly easy) + core and stretching.

A guy stopped me as I went into the gym to do my supplementary stuff and asked about my running. His mom died about a year ago and he got out of running. I encouraged him to run, and think I may have helped. Super nice guy. I did at least one good deed today.

PM: 5 miles easy. First road double in . . . a long time with the decreasing daylight last fall, down time after the marathon, etc.
