Happy Hollow to the Celery Bog and around campus - 13 mile, averaged 7:48

Planned on 6-8, but then I started exploring and really had fun. Until I got back into Lafayette and biffed it in a parking lot. My ninja skills allowed me to roll out of it, keep running, and hit the last uphill mile at marathon pace (6:54). Little bit of blood, lot a bit of wounded pride.

LT intervals on Courtland - 3.1 warm up, then 3 x 10 minutes at lactate threshold pace w/ 3 minutes recovery jog, followed by 3.1 cool down

Interval 1: 6:26 pace

Interval 2: 6:22 pace

Interval 3: 6:22 pace

Pretty pleased with this one. Effort felt about right and the last LT workout I did was 10 days out from the marathon and I think this one was a harder effort, but didn't necessarily feel harder.

Off to see my folks in Maine. Weather looks good, so the running should be coldish but snowless-ish

Wingood/Coopers Mills/Erskine Road loop - 7.4 miles, averaged about 8:10 + 10 x 100m strides

Wet and icy. Muddy on the way back because the temp was climbing. Some jerk splashed me. Don't think he meant to, but he wasn't being super cautious. Roads were pretty open, especially compared to Lafayette (2300 people vs 65,000 or so).

105 to 32 to 17 out and back - 12.1 miles, averaged 7:49. Mile 11 at MP (6:54)

Good run. Effort felt comfortable. Felt like I had 16-18 in me. No sidewalks. No concrete. 5-6 foot wide shoulders. Need to fit in a long tempo. Probably on Monday. Or hit the track. Or a long run. Or a 1 mile time trial.
