I'm doing so well with my slow easy miles and actually starting to enjoy running slow.  I did throw in 5 x 0.1 mile hill sprints during the run, but all the rest was around 9:30 minute pace.

It was a nice calm morning for a swim and bike.  1 mile swim in the lake, getting faster without the wetwuit.  Then 10 mile bike through SARA Park, pushing hard.  

It was my first ride since the IM.  Felt good.

6 mile run, nice and slow except for miles 4 and 5 at an avg pace of 6:30.  

Last night I did some upper body weights and core work.  Hoping to get in lower body tonight.

Did lower body and core tonight.

I had my annual physical with the doctor this morning before work.  All good!!!

But I didn't get to exercise before work.  I did upper body weights and core work tonight while watching some continuing education.

10 mile run

First 7 at a long slow effort.

Last 3 at mp effort.

Felt pretty good.  My mp is a long way from where I want it.  Luckily I have 5+ months till race day.
