8 miles at goal boston pace tonight, 6:44 avg. For 5300' that is pretty good because it translates well to lower altitude. 53:57 for 8 miles, 47:00 for the 7 miles not counting the first one, which is more like 6:43 pace. total 10 miles tonight was 1:08:50, 6:53 avg pace, overall a solid run! only downside was the cold

tough slogfest this morning, 8.5 in 7:51 pace, wasn't much fun. 61 miles in the last 6 consecutive days, pretty good building phase, but also pretty taxing

14.2 tonight, 7:14 avg pace, a really great run considering I got the visual symptoms of a migraine at about mile 7, was out and back though so had no choice but to run back, 2nd half was faster than the first, 1:42:XX overall + strides, a good run overall considering the circumstances

did some MP miles today, 6 in 6:44 avg pace, most uphill and into a strong wind, so pretty good sign. I did run out of steam later (i was hoping for a little longer MP work), but I think the aforementioned hills and wind took their toll. 1:16:40, 6:58 avg pace for the 11 miles overall

pretty cold evening (27 with wc of 18-21), only light winds though which helped. got my goal of 16 miles tonight, 7:19 avg pace (1:56:57 overall), took about 5-6 miles to loosen up then I started to roll off a pretty steady string of 7:12-7:19 pace, just kind of locked in. Strides after
