11.300.000.001.0012.30

12 easy with 8 x 200m levee sprints. My legs are feeling pretty good considering all the miles from last week, and I got after these.

35, 35, 34, 34, 33, 33, 33, 33

Times are just meant to be relative week to week. I haven't measured this aside from pacing and the GPS watch. I figure it's within a few meters of 200, and that's good enough.

AM - 6 x mile (1:00 rests) + 6 x 35s sprints. I moved up the workout by a day due to wind forecast, and because I'm feeling well recovered. I had 60F temps and 5 mph wind. Did 2 reps into the wind and 4 with.

5:11, 5:18, 5:11, 5:17, 5:10, 5:10

5:11 & 5:18 averages to 5:14.5 which is about right for the overall effort. I'm continuing to feel excellent in workouts. Felt like I could have done 4 more of these without reaching race effort.

PM - 4 easy

Unplanned day off. It's been a few weeks since I took a day and I needed it. I still feel guilty for missing 16 miles of planned running.
