I've decided that if I ever want to run a fast marathon again, I've got to start doing some speed work again.  So, I got started with some 400m repeats this morning.  I ran to the middle school track then did 10 x 400m repeats with 400 m recovery jogs in between. I averaged 1:25 for the repeats. Then, I ran home easy.

Total run 9 miles

Sketchers Sprint Miles: 9.00

Yasir, I haven't been riding since my last tri. I need to get my bike back out.
