AM: 18 miles, 7 hard bridge repeats and 3 hard hill repeats at effort in Clearwater.  I am generally pretty pumped up for this workout, so it went decent.  Just wish I had someone to run fast with.  I live in the wrong state, I guess.

AM: 10.4 miles.  3 of the miles were in the 6-6:30/mile range, but I wouldn't count those as fast or useful, they were just kind of there helping other runners.

PM: 10.5 miles, 3.5 fast at track with John.  Ran 4x1200, with 400 recoveries, and then immediately 4x200 with 20 then 40 second walking recoveries.  

Splits- (1200s)- 3:47, 3:49, 3:45, 3:48, (200s)- 31, 29, 31, 34

Overall, I felt fine.  I was definitely a bit worn out from Sunday's long run and hills, but I had a ton of strength still in me at the end of this workout.  I would have liked the obvious victory of being under 3:45 for the duration, but within 4 seconds isn't much off, particularly running the workout out in front.

AM: 10.2 miles, 3.5 fast at Weedon Island- a 5k and 10 hard striders.  I had felt pretty beat up this week since the murderous Sunday bridge intervals, so I wasn't expecting to run fast.  I suppose I was aiming for sub 17, just to get another notch on the website, but I felt pretty good so I just kept running hard.  Broke the course record again that I had set last week.

The crazy news was my heartrate was registering very low compared to my normal hard efforts, so I think two weeks from now I'm going to run the course in sub 16.  

The course is definitely turning into home field advantage for me.  I was speeding up, slowing down, angling around turns, avoiding roots/branches, finding the more packed sugar sand, and turning it up at just the right locations.  It will be fun if I ever get another runner out there who is close in speed.  

PM: 13.7 miles
