Ran a new route today. First 4 miles assend about 200 ft. then small rolling hills for about a mile, then I turned around and ran back the same route. That first assent seemed to take it out of me... Although where I noramlly run is hilly (150 ft. max assent), this route seems much harder.

Ran a different route today...more intense hills. I don't like running down hill, it's not comfortable! Interesting my heart rate dropped slightly from my last few runs. Hopefully I'm making some progress…Going to run the same route tomorrow. Usually when I run the same long (for me) route two days in a row I run it faster the second day...that's a curiosity to me. This blog thing is new to me and a little strange...it feels like I'm talking to myself...haha..

Total elevation change on the run is 171 feet.

Been running the Treadmill on my easy 5 mile days, keeping an 8:00 min. pace. I'v noticed my avg. heart rate has risen slightly. This may be because I've been running two 10 mile days before an easy treadmill day. Next week I plan to flip my training and run easy long runs and fast short runs.

Okay....Changed my mind, didn't stay out late last night so I went to the gym and ran 5 really easy miles and worked some weights. Made sure my heart rate stayed below 125...thinking I should run about 50 miles after that!
