Off. 41 days on.

Didn't want to get out of bed. Body and mind are rebelling in the final weeks of the semester. We drove back from Toledo.

20 x 1' On/Off + 10 x 30" On/Off

Around 5k effort for the 1' and a bit faster for the 30". Didn't want to get out of bed, but I got out eventually. Cold, windy, and damp. November has not been pleasant. 30' warm up w/ a few half-hearted strides. Workout went fairly well. The 30" are tougher than they look on paper, but they aren't terrible. I did this workout within the last year but cannot remember when. Cooled down to 13 miles.

Weight really got away from me again. Oh well.

PM: 5 miles, averaged 9:54. HR 131.

Much needed run. Should have got out for a short run this morning. I had an owl hooting at me.

A little out of the maintenance zone, but it didn't feel that hard. Legs felt good. Too many Voodoo Ranger IPAs. Layed in bed through the morning.

55' @ Marathon Effort + 6 x 45" Strides

Slept through the morning and lunch and finally got rolling in the afternoon. Wasn't sure I was going to make it out, but I got it done.

Warmed up 3.9 miles. Did 8.25 miles in 55' or 6:40 average. Pace was slower than expected, but also not suprising. Effort felt about right for how I usually go an 8-mile tempo. HR was a bit over marathon effort. Took a 5' plod and did the strides. Those felt decent. Slow to start, faster to finish. Cooled down about 30'.
