It was actually very nice weather this morning despite being 96 degrees yesterday.

I ran the small loop. My legs are still just a little sore. We'll see how they feel after this run.My next race is the Beach to Bay Marathon Relay on May 17th. I'm running the last leg which is 5 miles. Hopefully I will be back to 100% by then and can really run fast. I also plan to run a 5K on the 24th of May. I'm not really in shape for these fast races but it will be a good test to see where my base is and then I can start doing some real speed work.

Ran small loop. Legs still a little sore.

Hebrews 10:24-25 

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

Very...very nice morning to run at 54 degrees and low dew point.

My legs feel pretty good now (not quit 100%) but seem ready to run again. I wasn't expecting to run this tempo run this morning but I just felt good so I ran.

7:15 Pace...not bad. Now to get ready for the Beach to Bay Relay Marathon on the 10th.

Target: I Just Ran. Legs felt pretty good. A little sore right groin from roping on Monday.

Psalm 139:17-18 

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you.
