AM - Lifting session. 3x10 on bench and squats at a whopping 95 lbs, then 3x10 reps on lats. Stomach, back, and light hammy curls. Getting ripped.

PM - 10 miles with Carly the dog. I'd say easy pace but she sort of sets the pace. And it's not my easy pace. She pooped out some rope she apparently devoured yesterday. Maybe I'm glad I don't actually own her.

AM - Work loop (3.25)

PM - 10 miles with 8x200m on the track. I headed up to campus and did my loop through the Arboretum. I picked up a pair of NB LD5000s and used the 200s to try them out. They are much more aggressive than the Wire 3s and I'll need a bit more time in them, but the initial feel was very good.

My Achilles' were very sore in the spikes. I've been working hard to try to get this problem under control. Well, it is under control as I'm able to train without much pain, but I can't get them to heal up completely. The way they felt in the spikes I think it'll be best to stay out of them as much as possible. I usually like to train in spikes so that I'm used to the feel, but it looks like I'll need to hold off.

No run. I've come down with something nasty, so I'm taking today off.
