First double since probably November. First true AM run in who knows how long. Cold and sunny in the morning, and the run set me up for a good day. I forget how important running in the morning is.

STRIDLEK WORKOUT

3 (6 x 40") w/ 4-5' jogs between sets and jogs back to starting line. 23' up/20' down

Overall average pace better than last week with another set and the stride paces were faster. Felt great on the warmup and solid throughout. Always a deceptive workout. It's never hard to complete, but it does wear you out in ways you wouldn't expect (I'm pretty sleep now at 9:30).

Good progress the last 7-10 days in making my way back.

PM: 7.7 miles in 65' on the treadmill. HR 153.

Started very slow finished fairly strong the last 5' (8.8-10.0 for the last part)

Captain's chair after. Megan did her long run. We signed up for Glass City Half last night. I'm going to do it as a workout for whatever is on the schedule that weekend. I'm definitely not in surprise 1:20 shape as I was last year. I always find it hard to do a race as a workout, though I've only tried twice.
