6 x 5 min pickups w/ 1 min recovery. Did this one at Bird Park w/ Ben. Pickups were hard but controlled. The 60 sec recovery came up real quick.

No energy today. Good thing it was an "easy" day.

Progression run: 7:30 to 5:55 pace. The right calf started flickering a little bit so I stopped and put on the compression sleeves. After that things were fine. I was just tired.

3 x 12 min pickups w/ 2 min recovery. Felt pretty good today. When I finished this one, I said to myself that I'm starting to get fit.

Started this one easy but most of my miles were in the 6:50 range. I tried to finish this run at a fast pace but I didn't have much success w/ that, although I did get a couple in at around 6:42 pace. I was hoping for low 6:00's. Next time.

Yikes. Slow. Bridge day to tomorrow's run.
For the Week
73 3/4 miles in 6 runs
5 core workouts
1 lifting sequence
Analysis: I felt sick to my stomach after two of my workouts this week. I consider that a good sign. It means I'm getting in shape. My goal for Saturday was to put up 23, so I'm happy I hit that goal.
