Thursday: AM: 40 min easy, PM: 20 min jog (sick)

Saturday: 16 miles in 1hr 45 min w/ 3 miles @ HMP (sub-5:55) and 3 miles @ MP (sub 6:20) (on leg 2 & 4) (much better!)

So yes, I got sick and 4 quality days became 4 days of jogging. In the end, it was probably a blessing. I felt amazing on my long run this morning and had two really good sections of tempo.

Today was the Boardtown runners reunion, so Micah, David and I were joined by Tiffany for most of the run which was awesome. There was pop in my stride today and I haven't felt this good on a long run in a few weeks. Obviously, this is because the last few days have been recovery, but all my training leading up until this point has been fantastic.

Going into Montreal, I know that I am capable of a good time. If it happens, great! If not, there will be another race later this year to try for a big PR. I am looking forward to the next few weeks of racing, a good summer, and then prepping for a fall marathon...possibly Chicago Marathon? :)

We will see.

Love your logs.....they make my jaw drop. 7:10 pace the day after a 15 @ sub 6:45 makes my legs sore just thinking of it. Do you have your next marathon picked?
