I was not looking forward to this 15 mile run. On top of that, I had to do it in the evening and I hate to run in the evening! Overall it was okay but I got tired at the end and I know I'm going to be sore tomorrow!

12 miles on Saturday made me 50 miles for the week!!! It's been a long time since I hit 50 and now a 15 miler on Monday!

It was very foggy this morning and I was not feeling like running 10 miles physically or mentally so I split the run into two runs, one in the morning and one in the evening. (Man it's great to be retired and have a part time business that affords me to do things like this! :-)

Morning:
Ran 5 miles at about 8:30 pace overall. Ran Fartlecks on the hills. Watch died after 2.5 miles. (41 degrees)
Evening:

My legs are growing, I can feel them!

This was a good run. After feeling really tired for the last few days I stayed up until 1am last night and felt great this morning...figure that out...? 

Hit my mileage goal for the week. The next four weeks have 20 mile runs in them...Ahhhh..!!

The weather was great with very low humidity and dew point. :-)
