10 total together, really a worst case scenario out and back, had a major stomach issue at the turnaround at 7 miles, first thought was to make it back home and that maybe it would pass, took a GU early to try to calm my stomach, didn't work, made it 3 miles into the return trip then i had to find a restroom and that took me on a crazy roundabout route of locked park bathroom doors, walking-jogging and finally ending up at a caribou coffee, then jogged the rest of the way home after the stop, but the whole flow was thrown off and it ended my bid at a decent long run, although my 10 miles was pretty solid before the wheels came off, just one of those things that happen to runners

pretty solid workout tonight, no garmin watch as it was dead battery, but i ran the familiar hillier route that i've been hitting a lot lately. Felt pretty decent and wrapped the entire run up in around 53:14, which is about 7:06 avg for the whole run

treadmill tonight to get in some speed work. started off with a mile wup then went right into some GHMP speed, held 6:03 for 4 miles then dropped to 5:49 to close out the 5 mile tempo run, total time was just over 30:00. 6:00 pace, felt tough but I got through it and that is the important part. Should be a good sign of where I am in terms of fitness.

treadmill tonight to get some speed in, hit the 3 mile tempo in 6:03, 5:56, 5:49, progressively faster for a cumulative 3 mile tempo in 17:50, a really good sign of my increasing fitness, short on time and its a cut week so I ended with just 6 tonight
