PM: 18 miles, averaged 7:41. HR 154.

Nice break in the weather. Ran to Lake Orion and back on the Paint Creek Trail. I asked a guy what town I was in because wasn't sure if I was. So that's the extent of the trail. Going to need another partial out and back for longer runs or run through town and hopefully not get lost.

A beautiful woman rode up behind me on her bike, asked me if I was okay, if I needed any water, and how fast I was running. Kind of a mystical run. Saw a deer.

PM: 10 miles. HR 141. Did 6 x 200 on the track (41-34).

First few with Megan. Park was insane so I ran around the neighborhood and found that the track that's 1 mile from our place is open. Not sure if I missed that last fall or it's just now open. 

I keep going back and forth about a marathon this fall. I think I'll run Philly again, but plans will probably change again.

Happy 4th!

AM: 10 miles. Had a decent, low-stakes workout going but I got a crippling side stitch just before 8 miles. Too dehydrated. Was Working on a 10-mile progression run. I'll get some good mileage in this week.

PM: 4.25 miles. HR 140.

PM: 5 miles on the treadmill. Did some hills.

The Planet Fitness I run at was evacuated because a meth lab blew up. Not sure what the connection was but a man fled the fire. I wasn't there at the time. Good times.

Gorgeous evening. Lower 70s and dry. Another good week. Seemed like more running than 80ish miles. I'm pretty sure I'm running a fall marathon.
