Almost 80 degrees out, so veered off the road for 5 miles of trail running- did 7.5 miles total.  Also, did weights w/legs and 500 jump-ropes.

3.5 miles on TM @ 9min pace.

Almost 80 degrees out again.  Ran a slow progressive run (9:19,9:09,8:26,8:17) and then did a nice firm tempo (6:44,6:37,6:30)- I cheated on the last one a little because the last .2 miles were all uphill.  I stopped, stretched my legs, and finished strong.  Then calmed down w/a cooldown segment- 8 miles total. 

Did another 2.5 on the TM- really didn't feel like running, so felt good to discipline myself even for such a short run. Trying to stay consistent and may have a tiny outside chance of running in Boston if I can drop another 4-5 pounds and feel healthy.

Felt really sluggish today.  My wife's sick and hopefully I'm not coming down with something.  Forced myself to the gym and even pushed to get a couple quality miles in.  TM workout:  2-mile warm-up, 3 x 800 intervals (3:13,3:11,3:09), and then closed with 1/2 mile @ 7:24 pace- 5 miles total. 

5 more on the TM @ 8:41 pace.

Low 70's out and all of my family was away, so decided to give a shot at a long run.  Ran first miles @ 8:17 pace, second 6 miles @ 7:18 pace, miles 12-16 @ 7:06 pace (2-3 minutes between each of the first 3 segmants), and then jogged the last 4 home @ 9-10 min pace- 20 miles total and I am spent!
