AM- 6 miles easy at 7:30 and 3 miles at 6:50-7/min pace.  I may keep the volume at 70 mpw for a while with 2 hard workouts per week.  Seems about right.

AM2-Went home grabbed some fluids and decided to go do my hard workout before the heat set in this afternoon. Glad I did that because wow I really felt strong this morning for some strange reason. Was it a cooler temp? Earlier start? Possibly combine those along with recovery now from the marathon and I think that just may be the answer.

Anyway, I went 6 miles total with some faster fartlek segments of 3 min on with 1min off working on form and turnover.  Stretch afterwards.  Saw Maurine on the road and waved hi but didn't have time to chat as I was doing my repeats.  Kinda selfish of me I know..

PM-8 miles easy at 8/min pace trying to keep the heart rate low. Felt ok but a little toasty out there this evening..  7th and 13th east.  So much for 70 mpw:)

AM-Easy 4 mile jog on the grass field outside the house while the kids played.  When we reached the field we could hear the chimes from the Lutheran church playing;  " Come Thou Font of Every Blessing".  I thought that was remarkable considering the church is about 1.3 miles away. You know we have never heard those bells from here and we all just kind of stopped what we were doing and listened.  Aaron, my 2 yr old said; "Daddy the Ice Cream guy"!  I said no it's even better than that..  It was kind of a peaceful and spiritual moment for us.  

PM- Lunchtime 10 miler at 7/min pace with last 4 at 6:30-40/mi.  Indoor track.  6x100m strides at 5k pace effort with some bounds and knee-up drills. The body really wanted to push things today but I held back and resisted the temptation.  I need to be fresh as I can be for Saturday's run.

AM-LT run with 2x3 miles at LT with 1 mile easy in between.  Focused on keeping the HR around 150-156 bpm as much as possible.  Monitor strap kept falling down from sweat..  Pace felt ok, not too hard but not easy either.
