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

Did 2X2 mile at 6:30 pace just for fun.  Drew and Lee weren't here today, but I was able to catch up with Christina a little bit.  What an awesome runner.  I felt really strong even considering the half-marathon the day before.

Ran 2.5, then worked out: biceps on fly machine, forearms, lat pull-downs, wide-grip pullups, low-row (wide grip), and shrugs with 60s (with controlled roll).  Ended with 4 more miles on the treadmill.

Had to skip track to do the tryouts instead.  Kids ran great, had a lot of fun, and we had 5 kids run under 6 minutes for the mile.  Only 2 threw up, which may be a record for lowest number on the first day of tryouts.  

Ran with Cory (22) and caught up with him about his first marathon, which he ran a 3:33:33- with only 2 training runs over 15 miles.  Yikes.  He's going to be fast if he decides to work at it.  Maybe I can entice him to run on Tuesdays.  This was his first run in 23 days.

Again, made a sincere effort to keep my slow miles in the 7:30- 7:55 range, which I have been consistent with since my 5k.

Split my run into 5.8 and 4.2, had tryouts in between.  Ran with Cory.  He seemed tired from yesterday, but was a good sport.

Overall, what a weird running day.  Started with waking up at 5:30 to run, and decided to sleep in.  Felt terrible for doing that, so couldn't go back to sleep.  That afternoon before tryouts, I ran 4.5 miles, with 2.5 of them at 6:00-6:40 pace. ran a 400m in 60 seconds flat with the kids randomly for fun, then finished with a little light running mixed with 6 more 400s at 5:08-5:20 mile pace.  Probably not the best idea for a workout, but running like an idiot sometimes can be fun.

Ran a fast mile and 800 with the kids @ 5:40 to pace the leader.

Running today felt amazing. Healthy, loose, and care free.

Mile warmup followed by 8 miles descending from 6:50s to 5:50s, then a shake-out. Was the last day of the Davis Island run group until August. Not the most outgoing of groups anyway, unfortunately.
