For doing 24 the day before, I felt pretty good. Especially on the first five. The second five caught up to me a bit. And then Ben was there to keep the pace honest. Good hard day.
Attended a conference today that allowed me to get in an easy am run. Felt like Bob Wiles but no rollerbladers.

Good energy but the pace was slower than I thought it would be. I was babying the calf which was "talking" to me.

Ugly. Sluggish from the warmup. Thought I might get a jolt once I started the hard work. It didn't happen. I slogged through this one at around marathon pace when I was hoping for threshold. The cooldown was long and slow and dark.
Legs happy to get a break after 71 in 5, which is more than usual for me.

Real early. Started slow. Fastest at end.

I talked to Ben Nephew about this one. I was thinking of doing 23-25 but he convinced me to do a harder 20 instead. By mile 3 the pace was going good. By mile 9 I was consistently sub 6:20. The last 7 were 6:01 or faster. I'm happy with that.
For the Week
75 in 6 days (7 runs)
4 core workouts
1 lifting sequence
Analysis: Another good week of miles. It's odd that I could run faster on the back half of a twenty miler than I could during a workout on Thursday. I've been having about 2 solid runs per week and the others have been clunkers. I don't feel like I've had a consistent training cycle. I want to get into one of those 3 or 4 week grooves where everything is butter.
