I was sick all night Monday and most of yesterday so I didn't get a run in yesterday.  This morning I woke up feeling much better, but the scale showed that I lost 4 pounds since Monday morning so I knew my run would be a bit sketchy. I therefore drove to the gym and did a TM workout so I could quit when I just didn't feel it anymore.

1 mile warm up at 7 mph

Then I did a progression run starting at 8.6 mph and increased 0.1 mph each mile.  After the 5th mile at 9.0 mph I was done. Then I cooled down with 2 miles at 7 mph for a total of 8 miles.

Hopefully I will be 100% by tomorrow. At least I don't feel like death anymore.

It was supposed to cool down to the upper 80s overnight but I was sorely disappointed when I got up at 5:00 and it was 95.  I therefore grabbed 2 water bottles and ran a couple miles to the track where I met up with Blake and we did a true Yasso's workout which is 10 x 800 m with 400 m recovery jogs. I haven't done this for years. Anyways, I averaged 2:55 per 800, so according to Bart Yasso I should be able to run a 2:55 marathon...NOT!  I mean that is what he predicts but I really don't think I can go sub 3. Who knows, maybe if I had the perfect day I could but after my Boston disaster, I have no confidence in my marathon abilities.  Back to my run this morning, I then ran back home for a total of 12 miles.
