Yesterday was a SRD after an 18 miler on Sunday. Today I had 5 easy on the agenda, and ended up going a little more than 6, and a bit faster than what is supposed to be my 'easy' pace. But I was going more based on how I felt, and I felt really good. It didn't seem like a hard effort at all, and I threw in a few strides for good measure. Total--6.05 miles in 56 minutes.

D^2 - let me know how those Fastwitch are, I'm debating a pair of those or possibly Mushas for 5K's
Kris Lee Duke - Hi. I'd venture no true long runs at this point, maybe just an easy, long-ish one 7 days out.
Jedi - fast splits, nice work
Gustav - hola
Rick - you'd probably get some attention from motorists, running without pants. Great job on the sub-20 pace.

Alexis - wishing you a quick recovery from whatever the injury is
Step - You can borrow my snowblower if it gets too bad

12.1 today, warm enough to wear only one layer of gloves and not go home with icy claws for hands. 500' gain sure was nice on the way back down. 8x(2:00 at 5K pace), 7:00 overall.

Got my intervals in. Either I used the calculator wrong or this wasn't that tough. It was 2 sec/lap slower than 10K pace, and since we were only running 1200s it wasn't bad at all. I took a full lap recovery, maybe I didn't need to, but silly me was worried about getting all my miles in since I wanted 9 total. After my 2 warmup miles, I ended up with 7 @ an average pace of 9:03- just 5 seconds off my goal pace for my 10 miler next week. So that's encouraging!
Shir- Always good not to come home with icy claws! I hate that. Nice job on the intervals.
