Newtone - 8.25 in 70 minutes. To break it up, I did 2 x 12 minutes higher end aerobic intervals w/ long recovery. 2 x 1 minute pickups at the end.

Salmon, asparagus, and rice for dinner.

Newtone - 8.2 miles with 15 x 1 minute on/off. Little faster than last week. Going to play in the snow when I get to Maine tomorrow. 

Also, this. Cat wearing a shark costume while riding a Roomba. It's as cute as it is funny.

Wingood/Cooper/Erskine - 7.5 miles easy.

Thought I might feel better getting out of Lafayette. Only marginally so. Run was slow. Felt just okay after. Ho hum.
