90' w/ 20' of pickup after 50'

Explored Bloomer Park for just a bit. It's basically 4 or so miles out, so didn't have much room to meander.

Fartlek of 21 x 1' on/off

Got up early (for me) and warmed up to Borden Park. It was cold and a bit windy. Workout went well, except I did an extra rep even with the workout programmed (forgot about the extra recovery between cooldown).

The 1ish-mile loop worked out okay. Good for marathon tempos and possibly mile repeats (when it's not busy).

PM: 7.7 miles on the treadmill in 65'. HR 156.

It was way too nice to run inside, but I kept Megan company at the gym for her long run. I started at about 6MPH and finished the last few minutes from 9-10MPH.

Did captain's chair and hip machines after waiting for Megan to finish.
