AM- Big workout. 8 mile tempo + 5 x 35s fast. Hit 44:01 or a 5:30 average.

Splits: 5:29, 5:37, 5:31, 5:29, 5:36, 5:26, 5:27, 5:26

Weather was 45F with 0 wind. It might be the last non-windy day for a couple weeks, so I'm happy I coud take advantage. I felt a little rough to start, but after mile 3 I started to click. 180 degree turn after 4 and took a minute to get back into the groove. Finished feeling tired but still strong.

PM - 4 recovery

12 pretty slow. No watch, but probably just a hair under 8:00 pace. One of those days where getting out the door was tough and it just didn't get better.

21 mile long run, 6:34 avg. Started with the usual old man mile (~7:40) and then averaged right around 6:30 from there. I don't think it will matter how fit I ever get, 20 miles will always be 20 miles. Very tiring run.

This is a weekly mileage PR for me. Turned the knob down on intensity and up on volume this week. The next 2 weeks are planned to be at or just under 100 miles with a little more intensity.
