Repeat miles today, did 3 of them. Wanted to be under 5:40, and was on all three. Felt really pretty good running, had some more stomach problems, not sure whats still up with that. But they werent bad until late in the cool down. Splits:

1- 5:31.5

2- 5:38.8

3- 5:29.3

Overall, Im really happy with this workout. Glad I ran that fast and kept it pretty consistent. Took 3 min rep breaks between 1 & 2 and 3:15 between 2 & 3.

had speedwork planned today, but ran out of time. Its my wife's birthday so we are headin out to eat, and with class all day, all I could squeeze in was 4.5 which was cool, no GI issues today also. Speedwork will happen tomorrow instead, hoping for a decently long tempo. Splits today:

1- 7:20.5

2- 7:09.7

3- 7:16.6

4- 7:17.2

last .5-- 3:37 (7:14 pace)

5 mile tempo run today.Little cool and slight north breezes, but felt pretty good. I had to fight about half way through to keep up my pace as  my legs did feel a little tired, but I maintained and finished strong. Splits:

1- 6:01.5

2- 6:03.8

3- 6:03.6 (18:08, 6:03 avg)

4- 6:11.1

5- 6:04.8

TOTAL-- 30:24, 6:05 avg pace

Overall, Im really happy with the way this run turned out. Definitely could have ran slow that last mile, especially after a slower 4th mile and the fact that I was through the last half in 3:12, so 6:24 pace, but I nailed the last half in 2:52 to finish strong. Also, I ran my warmup mile a little under 7 min, so techinally GMP.
