Day off. 49 days on. It was time.

We drove to Toledo yesterday for Megan’s brother’s engagement party. We had a great time.

Windy. Bad heartburn.

A student sent me a platter of assorted pasteries. His wife is a pastery artist and she thought that they should do something for hisprofessors, who understood when he missed a few classes for knee surgey (incidentally to fix a knee issue from a detonated IED in one of his three tours in Iraq as a bomb specialist). He was telling a few younger students who asked and I don't think they were quite prepared for his answer.

PM: 4.2 miles, averaged 10:14. HR 126.

10 x 45" Strides @ ~5k Effort (Race Sharpener)

About 32 degrees when I got up. Hat and gloves again. A bit too early for this, but it wasn't bad. Felt generally okayish. Ended up running fairly fast even though I felt slow (5:22-5:05 pace).
