Easy run on the TM. Was going to do mile repeats but the legs were beat from work today. Plus stomach was acting up and I felt a little dehydrated. Excuses, excuses I know but will most likely get some good volume on Saturday.

Easy run with Riley on the Striders 10 mile course. Good solid run and good to have some company for its not the easiest course to run alone. Pace was roughly 7 min/pace.

Should be able to get a double in tonight.

Oh and by the way, 1 week of school down, 14 more to go until graduation!

Its about Dang time!
