Stayed the night in Seattle Saturday so I could get up and run the Burke-Gilman Trail (among other things I needed to do). Nice out-and-back to Matthews Beach Park, I ran on the soft side trail to the asphalt path, which was nice on the legs. Felt really relaxed and loose for a morning run. Nicer weather than I expected, no rain and fairly warm for this time of year. Kept a steady, easy pace and just enjoyed the morning. 58:46

Five easy morning miles at the Y, I'm real sluggish this week. Too much work right now. 39:40.

Quick post-work run at the Y, watching some NCAAs. Getting to work early to spend 11 hours in a chair isn't the best run prep, but it does make the miles enjoyable as an outlet. Nothing fast, 7:50 miles or so. 33:30.

Long run with Mike on Beach Drive. The best part of the morning was that it wasn't raining at 6 a.m. (90 percent chance today). At the start we hoped it would hold off until at least the mid-way point, which it did. But when the rain came, it really came. Soaked to the skin by the end. 

We paced fairly well today, hit between 7:20 and 7:40 miles most of the way out. Only one outlier under 7, though the last few were 7:05 to 7:10 (I think we just wanted to be done by then). I'd still like the long distance weekend runs to be a touch slower, especially as we close in on 20 miles.

Legs were a little heavy by the end, but nothing hurts or is giving me too much trouble. Definitely faster than the long trails run two weeks ago. 2:05:00.
