Another nice day out today. Went out for 10 miles then continued on to the track where I ran the straights at a pick-up and the curves easy. Basically my first introduction to faster running.  Felt good. Ankle can take a good load now and the flexibility is there. I need to push it a little and it feels better.

7:52, 7:23, 7:18, 6:41, 7:14, 7:27, 7:13, 7:20, 7:01, 7:13, 6:52

I'm not sure what that 6:41 was about but it was on a downhill, paved section of my run and I must have gotten a little carried away.

AM: 1 hr. Pool run

PM: 6 quick easy miles. Nice weather.  Dead lift machine and leg press, followed by calf machine to work my achilles/calves very well. Standard core routine.

I was going to run 8 but when I go to the gym after work, they informed me they were closing at 700 due to spring break hours....stupid since I am a staff member and half to pay to go there but I understand it's a college campus.

10 (supposed to be) easy.  Ran after work. It was 65 degrees and an amazing evening for arun now that daylight savings time is back.  Anyway I attempted to go slow 7:30+ pace but ended up running low 7:00s and high 6:00s. It felt really easy.  Standard core routine, lots of stretching.

8 easy. Started out too fast but ended up averaging 7:30. I got rained on and I was soaked so I said screw my core routine.

AM: 1 hr. pool run

PM: purposely took off.  If I ran my normal six and my normal distances the next few days, I would be well into the 60s for this week's mileage and that would be too much for me now.  Aiming for 55 this week.

Can you belive this weather? Yesterday's high was north of 65 degrees. Today, extreme wind and well below freezing for the high. But Saturday it's supposed to be 60 again. WTf?
