Out and about in DC, ran down to the monument and WH, then back to the hotel. Slow, didn't feel peppy.

Hotel basement treadmill. Ugh, steam bath.

Nice sunny 55 degree day! Ran Sch Hd on the path, slow but so nice to be outside.

Nice day! Felt fine, kept it to 4 miles just under 9:00s so I would have legs to run with Ron in the morning.

With Ron, felt really good, better than in a long time. Ran steady 8:40s with a little faster by the end, but just a nice, solid 6 mile run. It's been a while.

Another pretty good run on a pretty nice, if a bit chilly, day. Was spot on just under 9:00 pace the whole way--that seems to be my cruising speed for the moment. Hopefully it will start to speed up if I have better fitness and fewer pounds to haul around.

Felt v ill Monday and better but fragile yesterday. Ran on mill today bc very cold outside, but didn't progress past 8:49 pace, given my recent outdoor run paces. Felt much better and was able to cruise comfortably. Maybe I really need to ratchet back intensity for a while but build easy distance.

Bleah. On mill, felt crummy, weather crummy.

Boy am I slow these days. Averaged 9:01 for Sch Hd 4. Overall it felt easy but I did try to pick it up here and there. Finally a nice day though, and it was good to get out.

Schooner Head. A little quicker than usual, but still slow. Nice cool cloudy day though.
