    13.5 miles yesterday morning and then 6.3 miles of farleks this morning.

    I just found out that an elementary school a block from my house is hosting a 5k in a few weeks. Finally - my wife and daughter will have no excuse for not coming out and watching me run. They might not even have to leave the front porch!

    4.8 miles this morning with a bunch of speedwork at the track. For some reason, I hate going to the track when the weather is cold so I always neglect speed through the fall and winter but now it's back to work.

    6.25 miles today. I ran fast for me (7.5 minute miles), as there appears to be a deluge on the way to the Philadelphia area.

    All in all, the run flew by as the past two days I have been taking it easy with 45-minute elliptical workouts.

    Got out of work early yesterday and made the mistake of an afternoon run in the 90s. I cut it short as I felt near death...got in 5.7 miles and walked a good mile back home. This was even with 44oz of water. I will stick to nights or if I can shake myself out of bed for an early run.

    50 miles on the bike today with no run. Tomorrow looks ripe for a long cruise on the trails.

    5.5 speedy miles.

    I'm going on a week-long road trip next week and can tell I'm addicted to running since I'm totally down on not running for seven days straight.

    Did 6k yesterday and my legs felt like bricks at a 6:45/km pace. Did 10k today in 1:02, maintained around 6:15 the whole time and it felt awesome.

    First 10km ever. If I can do it in 1:02 now and I'm doing a race in August, I think 55:00 is reasonable.

    6 miles this morning, longest run in about 4 months. It was not easy.

    Got in 10.5 yesterday. Partly cloudy turned to pure sun making the last 3 miles quite hot.

    I have been enjoying 4-5 mile runs for the past few days in Chicago's West Loop neighborhoods. Running in new venues always makes me pick up my feet a little faster.

    This morning was the first fairly, warm humid run that I've experienced this Spring. After all the wretched weather that we have had, there can be no complaints.

    Similar experience. I did 5.75 miles today, and took a new route, which was inspiring enough I forgot about my dead legs from 5.5-6.5 mile runs for the past four days straight.

    6.5 miles this morning.

    I'm on day #2 of a 40 day run streak from Memorial Day to 4th of July and also trying to get another 33 miles before the end of May to hit 200 for the month.
