    5 miles, negative splits. Got within 2s of my best mile on the last, but it included about .2 mi of a decent downhill. :)

    Been feeling somewhat lousy about my running lately... really struggling through the shorter runs.

    I think it took me longer to recover from that 50M than I wanted to admit and I was compensating by slowing my normal pace dramatically (trying to make it feel "easy" or something?).

    In any case, two weeks ago I decided to get back to pushing hard on the daily runs. Today I was able to finish 6.5 miles in under 50 minutes (in 85 degrees no less). I haven't been able to do that since sometime last year so feeling pretty damn good.

    Tomorrow morning I'll find out if this has helped my longer runs any :)

    5.1 miles with some tempo work. Good times in the Baylands. I witnessed a good sized gopher snake try to take out a cyclist who ran over it. Whoever thinks snakes can't strike while outstretched is in for a surprise!

    12.1 at what turned out to be a decent pace. First 10+ run in months. I was definitely feeling the last two miles.

    11.2km today @ 6:02/km. Had my pace down to 5:45 at the end. Felt pretty good, actually - I felt like I was starting to lag bigtime but was able to push through. Going to smash 10km in sub 55 this summer.

    3.2 miles yesterday afternoon. The second mile was at the local high school track and I managed to get it in 6:29. It's been quite a while since I did that but I still want to bring it down about 10 seconds or s, and then do it for another mile as well.

    3.2 again this morning but I wasn't able to replicate yesterday's fast mile. I'll happily settle for my 7:10 though with no fueling and jumping right out of bed.

    In Ohio for the week and got in 8.2miles this morning on pancake flat sidewalks. About 4 miles into the loop my shin started to have a little tinge of pain so I stopped and stretched a little. By the end of the run it was fine but gave me flashbacks to the days when I had a lot of injuries.

    5.9 miles this morning.

    Apparently today is National Running Day. I celebrated by kicking off my training plan for the Air Force Marathon in September. My goal is 3 hours 25 minutes.

    3.5 miles this morning. Didn't even realize today was national running day, but I'm glad I got some miles in!
