Same run today as last Sunday. I thought I'd see if I could do 5 @ 7:45, 5 @ 7:30 then 5 @ 7:15. The weather was great so that helped. I'm feeling I'm stronger going into this Boston training cycle than I've ever been. Hopefully it will pay big dividend at the end.

Didn't hit any 6's on the last couple of miles but the overall results were better than last week.

Ran 4 with Callie @ 8:13 pace.

Should have been easy but my HR raced to 175 at the first half mile before finally dropping back down to a somewhat normal rate.

Running 9-10 in the morning very catiously.

  • Psalm 37:7 
    Be still in the presence of the LORD, and wait patiently for him to act. Don't worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.
