    good Tempo 14 mi 01:36 06:50 pace

    This was a love hate kind of run. If I judged it by the first mile of the tempo portion I would have stopped. I was half in tears and frustrated with the week in general. But then you snap out o... read more

      this is perfection..... not because of the blaizing fast pace (most of us will never be that fast) but because at this point in the cycle you have done the work. It is obvious in this run. You wanted to quit but you hung on and hit it. You found that gear; hang on to it for the 13th! I am so excited for you! woohooo watching this cycle has been so inspiring, thank you.

    good Canadice 18 mi 02:25 08:02 pace

    Did this in the afternoon so I could sleep in and catch up on much needed rest. Also the weather was fantastic so didn't matter heat wise starting late. Second half of this was a little warm... read more

    good Arlington heights 8.1 mi 01:06 08:08 pace
