No run today. Did some weight machine and core exercises at home today while focusing on eating more calories also. Decided to shift more towards getting body weight and muscle development going for a while. Just way to thin...

Easy 6 mile run. Rail trail. 

I was looking back this morning and was feeling a bit depressed at how difficult running has been to fit in and achieve at in the past few years.  After looking further I realized that I have come a lot farther than I give myself credit for. You know I was never a champion collegiate runner as the best I ever ran in high school was around 21 minutes and change for a cross country 3 miler. So no particular talent there in spite of what has been said in the past. In fact it was only after quitting a 10 year pack a day smoking habit and a long ten years of trial and error running was I able to finally put out what I felt were some decent efforts. 

I keep telling myself it's time for some changes in perspective on the big scheme of things in this mid-life running crisis so to speak:)

AM-8 miles easy on Antelope/Main out and back. 70-75% mhr.  Picked up the pace in the last 1 mile-1.5 miles to 80-85% mhr roughly.  HR fell back to 48-50 bpm more rapid than usual right after the run which is a good sign that progress is being made.  

PM-No run tonight.  I think I'll keep the mileage at 8 miles a day for a few days to re-group then do a quality session Saturday.  Maybe long repeats at half-marathon-15K pace or something similar.

Easy/medium run for 5 miles at 70-80% mhr. 33:28.  loop course. My legs were definitely ready but I decided to save it for another day since there was so much traffic and it was just too dark this evening to be safe along this route anyway.  Still.. It was a good solid run and a somewhat decent mileage week however:)

A 10 miler today with 3-5 min segments hard at around 5k intensity coming back.  Tweaked the foot a little though around the arch on the last one coming up a hill.  Probably nothing but I will definitely watch it..  Extra easy tomorrow with a longer warm up to play it safe otherwise it was a rather productive and strong workout.
