AM - 4x cruise mile at Padden. It took my awhile to get settled into the pace. Calves are still a little angry from the half, and my right hip flexor/everything-else-in-that-area was giving me some grief. I finally caved and made an appointment with the chiro. My first quarter mile of the workout was way off pace (90 s), but then I settled in and did some work. 5:35, 5:19 (2:35 first half), 5:24, 5:23).

PM - Work loop (3.25).

13 easy at Lake Crescent. I hunted around for trails and finally found one in the last few miles of the run. Mostly on the roads for this one.

Mile speed day. I warmed up to the track and added in an Arboretum loop for some extra mileage. 4.5 mile warmup. I did my drills and strides and then 2x200, 4x400, 2x200 with 2:1 time rests.

33, 33, 65.5, 66.0, 67.0, 66.0, 32, 32

It felt great to roll through this short workout. I feel pretty slow right now, and I need a few of these shorter reps to teach my legs to run fast again.

Turf mile and then a short cool down home.

I'd wanted more mileage this week, but time was an issue. Next week could be more of the same.
