6 easy. Last week was terrible, running-wise. Baby has been going through a sleep regression, and work really kicked my tail. Looking forward to a better week.

15 x 1:00 on/off @ T + 2 x 35s sprints. This one felt much better than the previous attempts. Laying the groundwork for some bigger stuff, but it's still fun to get in the light work for now. Problem is I'm still way over race weight. I may be getting to the age that I actually have to exercise AND diet to be at race weight. What a horrible thought.

11 miles w/ 12 x 35s hill sprints. I found the last few to be quite taxing.

5 x 5:00 T w/ 1:00 rests. My old injury reared its head on #4. Devastating. I was just starting to believe it might be behind me. I tried 2 35s sprints after but could only do 1 pain free.

14 out north along the Farmington Bay wildlife something or other. Sloppy afternoon, but it was a good run. Aside from a blister on my toe that popped and bloodied my sock. I haven't had that happen in awhile.

12 x 35s hill sprints. Felt pretty wiped out, but the reps went okay.
