Ran to the track, then did 4 x 1200 m averaging 4:25 with 400 m slow recovery jogs, then ran home nice and easy. This workout had me intimidated before I did it, but it ended up not being as bad as I thought it would be.

Total: 9 miles

I woke up feeling sluggish and still felt that way as I ran a couple miles to the gym.  When I started running at 6:40 pace on the TM it felt pretty comfortable though and I kept running that pace for a full hour which is 9 miles.  It actually felt pretty good even at the end.  I then ran home which felt really tough even though I was going slow. 

Total run- 13 miles

15 easy miles on the trails keeping HR under 140.

I saw the coolest thing when I was out running this morning.  I heard this noise like a jet engine coming up over the crest and I looked up as saw this guy flying about 30 to 40 feet above the ground on a Fly Board.  It's a little bigge than a skate board with jets.  He flew over the crest slowed down, waved at me then took off again. I bet he was doing 50 to 60 mph.  It was really cool to see. He made it look easy too.

I didn't have a lot of time this morning. I had to drop of Cade, my 12 year old, for a dive. He is getting scuba certified. Then I did a quick 6 mile trail run before going back to pick him up. I ran a little faster than I should have on an easy day. HR was up to 145 for too much of the run.
