woke up and hit the roads for 14 miles this morning, got hot and humid pretty quick (in iowa so different than CO). nonetheless, it was a strong run and I was like a metronome for the flat part of the trail (miles 3-11), I was within 7:05-7:15 each mile, just really steady. The hills on the way home after 11 were difficult, but I managed. Nice to have a wake up and go day of such length with no nutrition, no water nor much breakfast (i think its a deprivation style run). ITs nice to know I can bang out 14 on tired legs and little else. +strides

Really good run again this morning, felt just really smooth again, locked in around 7:13 pace and just stayed there. ended up negative splitting slightly. 10 miles in just over 1:12. Right side hernia area is now bothering me just a little (starting sunday before I ran), nt sure what happened, but definitely keeping an eye on it. Was going to do 16-18 tomorrow but may push that to Thursday. Definitely didn't feel worse after today's effort so thats good.

another metronomic run, 7:16 avg pace for 10.5 miles, just kind of locked in again, got in between rain showers so that was solid - pretty normal Iowa spring. Hernia-area on the right side is still acting up - not sure if I should keep training for the full in June or pull the plug on the season...need to decide soon

really strong run this morning, just a wake up and go type run, farthest I've ever gone doing that - I have to say, it turned out well- I have been eating horribly and so I was anticipating issues there, but I didn't have any. total run was just over 2:01:XX, 7:10 avg pace, negative split by about 30-40 seconds. Just a really nice easy effort, but the speed is still there - went way out on the bike trail and back - part of the trail I run my half marathon on in the fall (PR course). it was pretty chilly and windy for may 9th, but I was probably still overdressed, side feels better today, which is suprising with how much mileage I've put up this week, strides after
