AM - treadmill tempo at lunchtime.  Appx 2 mile warm up and then 3 miles at 6:48 pace and down to 6:41 pace in the last mile.  Felt about right for the effort.

AM - 5 miles in some heavy wind and rain in Northern California (San Ramon) near San Francisco.   Just wandered around to get in some miles.  Ended up getting a bit hillier than expected - and rain and wind was pretty significant.  Really slow pace - and higher HR than planned.  Got into the hotel very late and got up very early.

PM - 5 miles at home after taking a red-eye flight home yesterday evening.  Limited sleep, but my daylight hours were not wasted in air travel back home.  On the other hand, I am really tired.  Decent enough run - but felt sluggish.

AM - 5.5 miles or so with Finn - fairly quick pace - it was a day when I felt strong and so I just went with it.
