Had a good day at church.  Getting ready for a nap now.  Just the slightest bit of soreness in my hips but that seems to be all the damage from the run yesterday.  Don't feel anything in my calves, quads, or hamstrings.  Should be good to go tomorrow.

8:56 average pace.  Very easy today.  I officially have a cold, so no desire to go any faster anyway.  Had trouble with the same two dogs I have been having trouble with.  They always come at me and I do the screaming rock-throwing bit, and their owner comes out and yells at them, but they don't listen.  She never apologizes or puts them up though.  I think tomorrow I will run by them and mace them. Anyways, happy holiday to those who are enjoying a day off.  I am going to work because it is a holiday and people will drink and do stupid things today.

Thunder and lightning.  All morning.  No way I could run safely outside before going to work, so I finally drove to Building 1 to run on the treadmill.  I was pressed for time so decided to make it short but make it count.

Set the treadmill at 1% incline for the entire run

warmed up one mile at 8:34 pace

5 miles at 7:30 pace--target marathon pace maybe? Felt harder than it should have at first but then got easier as time went by.  I am just not used to nor do I like running on the treadmill

1 mile at 6:40 pace--felt hard at first but was getting into a groove at the end.  checked my heart rate at the end--178.  Geez.

.5 mile cooldown.

I really hate the treadmill.  To me it is mentally defeating and I have a hard time getting into the groove.

Stretched a little, drove to post 11, showered, and got on the truck.  Now I'm at work and it's still raining--haven't heard much thunder though.

8:57 average pace.  It rained and rained all night, and was still raining this morning.  I waited a little while, but did not hear any thunder or see any lightning so finally I prepared for the soaking and out I went.  Got drenched for the the first 4 miles and then it suddenly stopped.  Altogether a pretty pleasant run!  Had walnut raisin oatmeal for breakfast and it is soooo good!

8:18 average pace.  Ran 5.82 easy, then 2 loops at fast but comfortable pace, so comfortably hard(7:26/7:18). ran 1 more easy than 1 more comfortably hard(7:09), then cooled down a little under a mile.  Hopefully my half-marathon pace is a little better than that.  I am not ready for a sub 1:30 half.  I am going to shoot for 1:32-1:33 half on the 20th.

8:45 pace.  very slow and rickety start, thought maybe I was just overtired and should go back home and go to bed, started to feel good after the first mile.  Tired from this week at work.  Going to take it easy as possible this weekend.  No long run tomorrow.

ok fixing this because I looked at my garmin info wrong

a.m.  8.18 at 8:36 average pace.  All easy except for a .23 up the road by my house  in 81 seconds(5:52 pace) to stretch my legs out.  Felt very good.  Figured I'd get extra miles in today but split it into two runs since I am trying to ward off fatigue.  About 8 more later this afternoon or evening is the plan.

p.m.  7:56 average pace.  Feeling good.  Did .29 in 102 seconds for 5:52 pace--this felt very good, fast but in control.  Legs felt strong and breathing didn't get away from me.  Splitting into two runs was definitely a kinder, gentler way to get some miles in.  Off to rest up the rest of the weekend and run some easy mileage next week in preparation for my half marathon.  Probably won't really taper but will take the last few days before easy with low miles.
