I started running in 2010 and have (mostly) kept it a habit ever since!  

Miles:This week: 35.10 Month: 262.75 Year: 262.75
Slow milesFast milesTotal Distance

AM: 10.4 miles.  1 of them was fast-ish/marathon pace.

PM: 8.15 miles, 3 of them fast with John.  16x300 with 100m true recoveries (walk/easy jog). 

Splits- Set one- 51, 50, 50, 50, 49, Set two- 51, 49, 49, 49, 49, Set three- 50, 49, 48, 48, 49, 49

The workout was relatively easy.  I gave effort, but never reached the bottom.  Mentally, these short intervals are not even a factor.  

In Florida news: it's hot and humid again.  On January 15th.  Global warming is starting to affect not just climate, but weather now too.  Oh now that's fun.  Isn't that fun?  That's fun.

My endless summer.

Your 16 300M sprints are making me do math! I'm thinking "I assume those numbers are fast, but I have no reference for 300m." Long story short - My calculator says you are fast! Nice Job!

Thanks Tom! It's a pretty random distance, but I needed something in between since I'm doing 200s on Tuesday.

Eugene- Wait until you hear about the moon "landing"! :D
