I headed to the track this morning but I forgot my watch.  I didn't really have a plan except to wait for Jim and see what he was doing and then run with him.  I started warming up and did 2 miles easy.  Jim arrived about a mile into it and said he was just going to walk this morning since his calf was bothering him a bit and he has his marathon this Sunday.  After my warmup I did 16 x 100m strides  with 100m jog recoveries.  Then I did a 2 mile cool down.  It was a good workout to start my taper.

Total run, 6 miles

Brooks Summons II Miles: 6.00

Mack, it was a pretty nice morning... about 77 degrees.

Thanks Dale.

Burt, I'm doing Utah Valley on June 9.
