PM: 12.75 miles, averaged 8:27 60' easy, 10' @ half marathon effort (humbling), 5' jog, 6 x 45" strides, 20' down Not so patiently trying to be patient. Got all my planed running in this week (Monday-Sunday), so that's a step forward.

Late: psoas release. AIS hamstring and static hip stretching. Hips are a mess.

Good, comfortable run. Weather was just warm enough to feel good, but cool enough to be fallish. Swans were practicing their "Milkshake" routines.

Stridlek Workout: 3 (6 x 40") with equal distance jogs, 4' jogs between sets, 5' jog, then 4' @ 5k effort

The extra minute this week burned a little bit. When I checked my pace after the session, I ran just about the same pace for the previous weeks on the 2' and 3' versions.

It was fairly warm at the start: 82 degrees. I shedded my shirt despite my modesty protesteth-ing. Diet is much better given the new job and schedule.

Absolutely perfect fall day. Should have run this morning as the weather was better, but it was still really nice.

Lunch: 8.25 miles, averaged 7:53 Did 7 x 20" strides. Cool and drizzly. Nice run.

Night: AIS hamstring and Myrtl routine. I was pretty diligent about doing this routine in early 2014. I don't think I have done it since then. It's a good one.

Very warm and windy.

Two weeks of consistency and I am starting to feel good. Looking forward to where this eventually takes me.
