My calves were still a bit tight from Saturday's race. I decided to take one more recovery run before running a workout. It was pretty windy this morning so that may have been a good choice. We'll see tomorrow. Otherwise, I felt good. I ran my Murray Park 10 miler. It was a bit trafficky at 7:30 a.m. I'll probably tempo tomorrow, and either fartlek or intervals on Friday. 15-16 on Saturday. 60-65 for mileage.

Three mile warm up. 6 mile tempo. 36:07. 6:01 average. Probably worth 6:10-6:15 pace since I ran it on the treadmill this morning. Felt under control, though. Lots of sentence fragments.

Cooldown: 10 minutes

Ugh. My legs were so tired today. I guess I worked hard yesterday! I kept an easy pace. I ran out 1300W to 7000S, down to the river trail

and left the trail at the bridge. Then I ran home via 4800S, for a wonderful uphill and windy last two miles. Men ignore this statement: Periods and running don't mix. Lady runners will understand. 7:17 average.

One more recovery day before another workout. I felt better than yesterday. It was hot and muggy for 7:30 am. I ran the River Trail/Bullion route eith an extra loop via Quailstone/2200w. I kicked hard down my block in honor of all the Des News runners! I hope you all ran amazing. I'm expecting Lindsey Dunkley to slaughter my 1:16 time from last year. I dream of being that talented! 6:59 average.

I love when track workouts go according to plan. I get a lot of my confidence from my speed, though I know there are so many factors to good running. Today was the first day I felt nice and smooth running on the track.

I warmed up 2.65 miles followed by 4 x 200. My goal was 5-6 x 1000 at 3:30-3:35. I wanted to stay under control because my long run is tomorrow.

I ran 400 meter recovery between intervals.

3:30.2

3:30.7

3:28.6

3:28.8

I stopped after five, erring a bit on the cautious side. The goal is to add more 1000's over the marathon cycle. I would love to get to 10-12 at this pace.

I cooled down 2.5 to give me ten for the day.

Really early run this morning. I started at five. I ran the temple loop sixteen miler and felt really good. It's rolly uphill the first half and rolling downhill the second half. I used the down on the way back to run a little more up tempo.

7:34, 7:16,7:19, 7:02, 7:02, 7:05, 7:12, 7:09, 7:17, 6:44, 6:36, 6:39, 6:39, 6:49, 6:10, 6:09

Last two at marathon pace. I feel so much stronger on long runs than I did during marathon training last year.

I read some articles about Mary Cain winning the World Junior Championships gold. I love that I can be inspired by someone who is half my age (but twice as fast.). 6:55 average pace.

I went to the gym to lift after eating breakfast. I'm ready to eat everything in tje house again and then sleep.
