Managed to catch "Music and the Spoken word" on the way to work tonight.  It made all the difference for the rest of the night.

AM-Easy 6 miles after work. A few zzs now.. 7th east.  7:20-7:30/mi. pace.  

PM-Easy-medium hard 6 miles before school. Felt pretty good today, nice but a bit windy.  I'm going out in a North wise direction today for once.  Wind at my back now on the way home.. :)  7/min-6:45/mi. pace with last 3 miles at 5:52, 5:36, 5:19. 

Hoping it will be warm enough for a fast medium distance run tomorrow like the man says it should be.

AM-Easy 6 miles earlier this morning, my morning schedule that is.. 7-8/min pace with a last half mile fast at I don't know,  it was just fast I guess  LOL..

PM-15 mile medium long run with 10 miles at 5:40-6:30/mile.  Alternating sub six-5:40ish pace with 6:15-6:30/mi.   This will hopefully help me practice true MP economy and form.  The trick is to run fast in a comfortable manner... Got some good solid sleep today even though it is turned around a bit again.  I am still alternating every other day by sleeping a small amount in the afternoon then 7-10 hrs the next day at night pretty much.   Crazy isn't it!  Little naps go a long way also.

PM-Easy 6 miles before school. 7:30-8:00/mi. 65-70% mhr.   Last mile was still very easy but faster at 6:52. Very strange.. Must be something weird adrenal wise. Stretching.. 7th east loop again.

Easy 10 mile aerobic run. No time, just ran easy and practiced form by running tall and relaxed.  Up to the canyon and back down.  

Read some blogs over lunch and it never ceases to amaze me how some runners will run big and fast mileage while injured.   Runners are a determined lot, but I just can't think that running hard through injuries is productive.  Just my thought..

AM-Easy 5 miler after work at 7/min pace avg. / T-mill. Very sleepy now.. need zzs...

Note -The current pic is of a 1937 Kadette 10 tube radio, not the RCA regenerative receiver which was next to me in the previous pic.  Took a while to upload I guess LOL!   Anyway.. I restore these for a hobby and am currently seeking work related to it whether by piece or full time employment.  Please let me know if you are interested or may have a lead of some sort and I will get back with you ASAP.   Thanks!

PM-Easy 5 miles with some pace pickups.  6:31/mi pace avg.  33:05 total time.  Easy long run tomorrow if time allows.  I wanted to race the 15k tomorrow but my body and wallet just aren't ready.  Gotta get some shoes first as I am really feeling the road now.   I can feel small rocks and grooves..

Ten miles today with 8 MP miles at 5:46-6:04 thrown in the middle.  THR-144-152 bpm.

 I decided to postpone my long run until the end of next week due to too sleep and fatigue issues.   Took a look at my mileage buildup and decided it was a bit too agressive especially with the volume of marathon pace work so I'm stepping back a bit by taking a recovery week.   After that I think I'll adjust some things.
