6-mile jog on the track, 7:12 pace. felt tired from yesterday, i'm pretty sure it's more to do with a lack of recovery than the running itself. feeling a lot better now that i got the blood flowing

AM - 11 miles on sokol, 6:16 pace. sokol isn't an easy course, so flying on it without putting in too much effort is a huge mental boon for that first workout next week. might do some short hills this week, but if i do it won't be anything too hard.

AM - 11 miles on sokol, 5:59 pace. if yesterday was a boon, not sure what you'd call this. double boon? boon squared? boooon? either way, this was awesome, and running it on a hilly course with an avg HR of 139 makes it even better. last 5 miles in 5:58, 5:55, 5:54, 5:47, 5:44

PM - 3 on mural, 6:16 pace. probably would have taken the PM off, but we have a nasty storm hitting us from tonight to tomorrow night so i probably won't get a chance to run in the morning. all i got was 3 before the storm hit WAY faster than expected

AM - 18-mile LR at mural, 6:12 pace. last 13 in 1:19:39.

quick complaint; this run definitely would have been faster at sokol or hilton, maybe even sandy. temperatures went below freezing last night, so at 6:30 the grass was wet and mushy which isn't the best surface for running fast. otherwise, perfect conditions. no wind, 36 degrees at the start and 48 by the end. also might be worth mentioning i went to the gym 30 minutes prior to bike on the stationary for a few minutes and do a bunch of dynamics and drills to warm up, mainly because it was cold out and i wanted to keep the pace honest from the start. might be worth doing even after it warms up. great run!

pictured below: why i immediately regret getting cool color schemes for running shoes 

PM - weights after work. mostly upper body and core, along with sled pushes and farmers walks. went heavy on the sleds and they killed
