I can't remember the last time I did strides. Absolutely exhausted. The run was nice.

PM: 12 miles.

5 x 1 mile with slow quarter jogs.

3.4 up/2.5 down with 6 x 20-second strides.

Just went by effort and let the watch auto lap. Didn't feel great. After the first one I was a bit dizzy, but pushed through. It's been since February since I did a set of mile repeats at this effort. Quite a way from getting them all under 5:40 like last fall but I feel okay with this session given current fitness levels and training.

5:58, 5:55, 5:49, 5:49, 5:46 (5:51 average)

Off. Up at 4:00AM for work and had to stay a little later. Got home and did a few hours of tutoring. Decided I needed a nap to continue standing the rest of the day. Waited for my brother who flew in for business and had a nice evening with him and Megan.

PM: 12 miles. HR 153. Enjoyable run.

Turned over 800 miles on my Kinvaras. For $50 I'd say I'm pretty pleased.

PM: 10 miles. Did some strides

Crisp fall air. Tried to squeeze in a certain number of miles in a specific amount of time and that was a bad idea. Felt like junk. I'm going to move my long run to Monday when I work later in the day.
