12 easy, 7:31 average. Legs feeling exhausted. If I can get through this week then it's mostly smooth sailing. Will have to reevaluate the week after tomorrow's workout.

Had a 4-3-2-1 planned, but had to scrap it due to fatigue. The plan was to start the 4 at MP, then drop to LT for 3-2-1. I felt pretty bad on the warmup but thought I might be able to warm into it, but then I went 6:00 and 6:11 for the first 2 miles. I paused, took a breather, and tried to reset and start again. No luck, I just felt worse, so easy jogging for the remainder of the run.

Easy miles for the rest of the week, and I may reduce Saturday's long run/workout as well.

6 stroller miles easy. No watch. I woke up this morning early to run, but my sleepy self decided I'd better play it safe and go back to bed. No harm done, I think.

12 easy, 7:28 avg. Still having beautiful weather. My memory says last year it was 80 degrees from February on. 45 degrees this morning with no wind is just spoiling me.

Big workout/long run. I moved my failed 4-3-2-1 workout to today and it went much better. Headed to City Park this morning and had pretty decent weather, though it was a little windy. About 65F with low-60s dew points. 6400m @ MP [800m jog], 4800m @ LT [600m jog], 3200m @ LT [400m jog], 1600m @ LT.

22:28 (5:35, 5:38, 5:35, 5:40)

15:28 (5:08, 5:08, 5:12)

10:23 (5:10.x, 5:12.x)

5:09

Fitness is coming around. I started LT pace a little quicker than intended, but it felt pretty good and sometimes I like to roll with it when that happens. I could tell after the second 5:08 the pace was just a touch hot and backed off.

PM - 4 recovery. No watch, but over 8:00 pace.
