10 miles easy on a warm sunny afternoon.  Ran the first 3.5 with Riley at a very relaxed pace and then when we looped by the house and she finished I did another 6.5 on my own at 7:30 pace.  Felt ok but not great.  Will concentrate on rest and sleep this week.  Weather forecast for next Sunday keeps changing.  Last night it was showing 67 degrees and rain...

Easy 4.0 miles at lunch around Feathersound. Felt very relaxed and strong over the last 2 miles after getting warmed up. Took yesterday off and have gotten at least 7 hours of sleep the last two days. (A vast improvement over my average of less than 6 hours per night). Will do some leg turnover work tomorrow and try to stay rested and healthy through the weekend.

Final leg turnover workout before race on Sunday.  1.5 mile warm up and then 4 x 400 at 5:50 ppm with 1:20 recovery and then 2 x 200 at 40 with 50 second rest.  On the treadmill at 1% grade - 1.5 mile cool down.  Felt very good - relaxed  and strong.  If the race was today on the treadmill, it would have gone very well.  :)

Easy 3.0 mile recovery run.  Went out around 6:15 this morning.  Weather radar showed some severe storms to the north but which looked like they were going to west to east and not dip south.  Made it about two thirds of the way through before I got caught in it.  Probably one of the worst storms I have seen - which is still going on right now complete with hail, tornadoes, high winds and lightning.  No worries, it made the run all the more exciting - I was only in it for about 5 minutes anyway.  Felt very good again today.  Will take tomorrow off and then a light shake out run scheduled for Saturday after my flight.

Easy shake out run in Athens OH before race day.  Cold rainy and windy today.  Supposed to warm a little and the rain is supposed to end tonight. The winds are forecast at 15-20 mph, but there is nothing I can do about it, so I won't worry.    Race course is mostly on a bike path along a river, out and back.  Did the run today on part of the bike path.  Should be good.
