    Doing this, three times a day... Next week, I must run in France, though. Don't care about time or kilometers, I just want to run in a foreign country for the first time in my life. :)

    I ran 6 miles on and around the track yesterday evening with the requisite set of 400s. Not as fast as last week, but I still managed a few in the 1:23-1:25 range.

    Today, I ran 10 miles on hilly trails in the heat of they day (it was 81-83 this afternoon here).

    8.6 miles this morning on tired legs and a foggy head. Snooze sounded like a better idea but I pushed through.

    9.8 miles this morning below an 8:30 pace. I had three 2 mile intervals below 7:30. I usually run around 4:45 a.m. but I didn't have to be to work as early today so I started about 2 hours later than normal. The temps were still in the 50s with no humidity and I was able to wake up a bit more before actually running and it seemed to make a huge difference.

    4 easy miles this morning with my friend who's in town for the SF Marathon 2nd Half. I stretched out for the last 1/4 mile. Felt light on my feet and fast. I LOVE the taper.

    6.1 today. Last time I did a competitive 10K I finished in just over 57 minutes. I was a tenth of a mile short on this run, but I finished in 54:18.

    Nice. Just did 10km in 55:00 on the dot which is what I was aiming for... Except the race is still 3 weeks out. :) I think with some more training, race day jitters and busting my ass on the day of, I could make 53 and change.

    Or you could surprise yourself... Race day is always high adrenaline. Watch you pace for the first half -make sure you don't go out too fast and burn out. With 10k races, I used to always end up going 5-8 minutes faster than my training runs. You mileage may vary, of course! Good luck! My next "race" is four weeks and a day out!

    17.8 miles on the trails today. My Garmin said I got in 3900ft of elevation gain but I don't believe that. From what I can find online...calling it 3100' works better but I will say my legs were pretty tired after. May make next week an easier week to rest the legs.

    Only about 8 miles In the past week total, as I've been vacationing in Brittany France. Interestingly I feel I am losing weight even though my mileage is down about 50-80%. I imagine it's the small portions and stronger tasting food (ie I don't consume as much).

    (I have two toddlers so am active no matter what.)

    16.5 miles yesterday and hit my 1,000 mile mark for the year. I'm a bit behind where I want to be on my quest for 2,014 miles for 2014 but am still ahead of last year at this point.

    Got in 11 miles yesterday which was probably a bad idea due to the heat. I consumed close to a gallon of water over that stretch. Also in the past week I have dipped 6 lbs which must be a lot of water weight. I switched from x3 sodium Bloks to some with a little caffeine so I think I need to add more electrolyte replenishment. I have some Hammer Endurlytes I need to use up.

    10 miserable miles yesterday, I crapped out around 8 and did a walk/run or the final 2. It got way too humid and sunny and I started to feel dizzy, so I had to take it easy towards the end. I'm taking a week off to give my legs some rest, and then in August I'll start training for my half marathon in January.
