3 mile tempo with Anthony in a cold rain. It's been a long time since I ran fast and it was nice to remember what it feels like. 16:20 with very even splits. My legs were soaked and frozen by the end, but the run was easier than I expected. I'm 10 pounds overweight right now, but aerobically I've got some fitness stored up from all those hours on the elliptical. I'm very happy with this first tempo run of the new year.

Met at Desert Hills with a pretty good group of guys and ran a fairly easy loop on the front side of Thompson Hill. They were feeling a little peppy and made me go about 6:50 pace, a little quicker than I felt like on a cold windy morning. Afterwards I hit the gym for my standard 20 min elliptical to finish out my strongest week of training in many months. Everything together should total about 60 miles for the week. I'm pleased.
