10 on trails, just realized I have been posting everything 1 day ahead of schedule so I am actually posting Thurdays run on Wednesday but on the Monday spot.  That's confussing.  So anyways, I'm calling my shot for tomorrow.

10 easy miles on the trails keeping my HR under 140. Legs felt really peppy this morning. I think I will do some hard hill work tomorrow.

It's time to get serious about marathon training so after a 1.5 mile easy run to my favorite hill, I did 30 minutes of hill repeats, then ran back 1.5 miles nice and easy. I'm hoping to get in 1 day of hill repeats or some other fast runnning each week and then on Fridays when I do my long run, finishing up with mp miles.  I'll keep everything nice and slow (HR under 140) to build the aerobic system and stay injury free.  Boston is just 3 months away!

10 easy on the trails this morning.  My HR was a lot lower this morning than normal, pretty much in the 120s the whole time but at my normal trail running pace.  Guess I was feeling good today after the hill repeats yesterday.

I stayed on the roads for my entire long run this morning.  I figure I need to get my legs and feet used to the pounding.  I started with 10 miles keeping HR under 140 then ran miles ll and 12 at mp.  I'm calling 7:00/mile mp for now although I could hardly hold that pace for 2 miles today.  Then did 5 more miles with HR under 140.

It felt good to run faster again, but I was surprised how hard it felt.  The good news was my HR dropped right back down under 140 within a minute or 2 so carciovascularly I'm fine, I just need to get my legs ready for the faster running.
