First substantial time at sub-6 paces in about a year or so. Good workout. Started somewhat conservatively, but went pretty hard once I got rolling. Warm but extremely dry.

Megan wanted to run at Paint Creek. Wasn’t planning to run, but couldn’t pass that up.

Day off tomorrow from running. First day since the end of February. 137 days. I’ll still do the Thursday ride, but this should freshen my step for the 5k, my first all-out race since Broad Street May 2015.

First few with Megan. Did 6 x 20” strides to get ready for Sunday. They were quite fast and I felt very strong. Starting to get my old self back.

Megan and I are at a Def Leppard and Journey concert (special appearance from the Pretenders). Megan loves Def Leppard and we thought they had already played but saw a commercial earlier this week and I looked up tickets and said, “Let’s go.”

It’s pretty much the whitest thing in Detroit right now for sure.
