AM: 14 miles easy-easy/moderate.  Ran solo on the Custis and W & OD. Legs are very tired now and they ache a bit due to the Mirage's.  They are too stiff and haven't loosened up yet.  My 890s were too soft and wore out too easily but the Mirage's are on the other end of the spectrum.  I've ordered another pair of 890s with my gift card from yesterday and will alternate them with the mirages.

PM:  2 WU  8K tempo run 28:02 (1600 splits: 5:36, 5:35, 5:36, 5:40, 5:32)  3.5 CD

Started a tempo on the track nice and easy.  I began to speed up on the fourth 1600 but was put in place by my pace group buddy and it felt strong but manageable as a pace.  Finished feeling refreshed and strong. If left to my own devices no doubt I would have dropped 5:30 low and 5:2x for the last two but that would probably defeat the purpose of the workout in the first place and leave me tired tomorrow.

16 miles progression. Started at 8:52 and ended in the low 5:40s 

Tired now.  First time in the 80s and my highest mileage week ever. When I told coach he couldn't believe I've never run this high before. Hopefully once I fully adapt to the higher mileage, my times come down.  I don't see how some can manage 100+ per week working full time but that's what I said about 60, then 70, now 80 and it really isn't that hard with run commutes.
