Just a long and painful run. Not fun at all. Not sure what to do about these long runs. I usually get stronger and faster toeards the end but I am the oppsite these days. Not fun at all. I still hit 40 Miles for the week which is good. My average pace was a death March at 9:49 with a total time of 2:19:22. Rough!

See you Monday.

My average pace was 9:11 with a total time of 2:19:04, I had 1.15 MP at the end so I was stronger than when I started the run. Progress.

See you Monday.

Just trying to work out the stiffness in these old legs. I guess the downhill was to steep... Oh well. I'll get there. My average pace was really easy and slow at 10:29 with a total time of 53:35, I tried a little lower weights to help wotk out the stiffness.

See tomorrow.
