Easy recovery run with Matty and Henry. Probably bored Henry for most of the run getting on my Astronomy and deep space kicks. Haha. Glad he was a great listener though.

Workout|Wednesday

4.40 mile warm with 3X15 second strides

4 mile Fartlek alternating quarters at 75/90

avg pace 5:35 min/miles

Nailed the 75 portion of the workout. But on the 90 portion I didnt do as well as I thought I did at keeping the pace. Lost about 20 seconds total. Still a great workout.

Not sure what happened this morning. Alarm was set to run with the guys, but ended up waking up right when I needed to meet the guys.

Anyway, ended up driving to Layton anyway and ran solo. Ran to Valley View Golf Course then headed North back to Antelope.

Race week and down week.

Had a solid couple weeks of mileage in the low 90s. Excited to drop the mileage this week, recoup. and mentally prepare for the next 3 weeks. If all goes as planned should be close to 100 miles per.

Good easy run this morning with group. Pace was relaxed and legs felt pretty good today.
