AM - turf + 2 on hilton, 5:42 pace. even for under 15 minutes of running at 3am i felt like i was gonna catch on fire. humidity, man

AM2 - 6 on hilton, 5:56 pace. kept the odd miles brisk and the even ones breezy; odd splits were all 5:33 and the even ones ended up getting progressively faster as i loosened up. would have liked to go for another set but my ankles had maxed out on those sharp hilton turns, at least for the morning

AM - turf + 4 on hilton, 5:59 pace. felt a painful twinge in my IT band just above the knee as i was decelerating after i stopped my watch(talk about sticking the landing!), i managed to somehow wake up before my 2am alarm though so i have a little extra rest time to give it if i end up doing an AM double

been running much more consistently than i've been blogging it the last couple months, nothing much worth writing about though. did some sprints this past sunday(only splits i remember were a 46 300m and 28 200m), but besides that mostly just 20-30 minutes runs around 10 times a week

AM - 3 on hilton, 6:27 pace. IT band/knee felt fine, although i'm probably going to a chiropractor later today to get my hips re-aligned(they've been needing it for a while)

AM - 3-mile shakeout on hilton, 6:07 pace. felt like i'd have strained something had i gone any faster... also felt like i could have gone much faster lol. also also, been a great stanley cup playoffs so far. go canes!

AM2 - 5 on mural, 6:25 pace. legs still sort of felt like they were on the verge of straining, so i took it a little easier to account for the bad traction/footing

AM - 3 on hilton, 6:07 pace. you'd think the difference between 63F and 73F wouldn't be that noticeable at 2am but yeah, i appreciated the slight cool very very much

AM - 3 winding through the adjecent neighborhoods in heavy rain, 6:34 pace. pretty rare i start a run from my apartment but the weather forced my hand

AM2 - 4 on the roads again, 6:30 pace. more rain. i'd like to think i'd have gotten in at least 10 this morning without it. i am typing this at 6am; might do an AM triple just for old time's sake. pretend i can still do things like run a 20-miler 5 times a week :)

AM - 3 on hilton. forgot my watch

AM2 - 7 on hilton, 6:40 pace. 10 miles on asphalt before 6am... i don't recognize these legs below me. took way longer than usual but finally got to the point where my legs feel sore after runs instead of like they're gonna shatter if i turn at the wrong angle. still need to see that chiropractor for the hips though. also, can't say i beat humidity but feels like i got as close to a draw as i ever will
