I feel like I went a little too hard on the MP segments. I had to stop after the 2 mile MP segment to drop a deuce. Whatever it was that was brewing inside of me, it was like the exorcist when I finally hit toilet. Good God. The problem was I forgot about the time change, so I couldn't do the runners cleanse before the run.Also my GPS is screwy. no way I went 6:00 then 5:30 on that fiirst part.

PM: 45 minute pool run

AM: 2.25 WU 8K tempo run (5:51, 5:29, 5:20, 5:21, 5:17) 2.25 CD

I started the tempo and just couldn't move...my legs wouldn't go and I was worried but then they warmed up and I went pretty quickly with very little effort in the final three. I think this big mileage week is making my legs tired so It takes awhile to get into a fast groove but since I feel alright I know I'm not doing too much.

PM: 5 slow/easy + alternate core routine

AM: 12 easy in the rain

PM: rest. no need to do this run. I am tired and I feel like second Saturday runs of 4 miles slow is just junk mileage.
