AM: 3 WU 3x3 mile with a mile easy in between. 1 CD

PM: 1 hr. Pool run + lots of foam rolling

George came up with this workout (surprising I know) for me. The idea initially was to do 3x3 mile with an easy mile in between reps on the tow-path in 5:30, which is between tempo and marathon pace. Since the towpath was too wet I did them around Haine's which made them a little faster. Felt good through the second rep. The third rep started to hurt at 1.5 miles but it wasn't too bad. Pretty good workout. 16:24, 16:22, 16:16

Saucony Ride 10 Miles: 16.00

Those are some legit times! I kind of wish you snuck a fourth 3-mile in.

You're giving yourself a good shot at 2:25. :)

Mike, thanks! While I might have survived a fourth rep, it would have no a bad idea since the amount of recovery i would need would waste this coming weeks workouts since my legs would have been rocked! Hoping March and April races go well after these big workouts.

Nice! That's some solid work.
