Perfect weather this morning, and I felt great!  I took advantage of Teren's day off to run longer.  Midmorning mid-long.  I'm trying to frontload the week a bit so I don't fall too behind in mileage.  We are going to Yellowstone later this week, and I don't think running will be optimal.  

I ran out 1300 W to Garder Village and back on the river trail.  I planned on 10 but felt great so extended.  I didn't do anything specifically paced, but I basically ran a progressive tempo.  It looked like this.

7:50, 7:30, 7:15, 7:18, 6:59, 6:49. 6:58 (this is where I decided to see what I could do.)  6:49, 6:38, 6:26, 6:00, 6:30 (uphill), 6:04 and 1.1 cooldown.  I didn't catch the split.  I'm excited to drop low sixes at the end of longer efforts.  It wasn't an organized workout, but I feel like I got some good benefit from today.

PM: 4.5 easy. Long day. 7:24 average

Long tempo.  15 minute warm up.  90 minute tempo.  14.56 miles in 90 minutes.  The same workout I ran last week but got cut short at nine. My longest tempo ever!  I cooled down an entire three minutes to hit 17 for the day.  I'm on a mileage roll, but now it's off to Yellowstone, so my weekly mileage will probably take a hit. 

Oh well.  At least I got two long hard days in.  Tomorrow I will run in Driggs.  There's a rail trail that will be nice to run.  I should be nice and stiff!  Friday I'm hoping for two runs in Yellowstone.  Still not sure where I will run.  Saturday, I would like a fartlek workout if I"m recovered.  Once again, not sure how the running conditions will be.  I know there's some treadmills in the condo complex.  (Yes, we are roughing it!)

9 farm road miles in Driggs. 40 degrees and sunny. It was perfect. My legs were really stiff. It felt good to loosen up. Running in Driggs reminded me of Montana running. 7:25 average.

PM: 2.6 miles. Mystic Falls.

More laps around West Yellowstone. Soooo boring. But, better than a treadmill. 7:07 average.
