Windchill well below freezing all day, lots of snow still coming down, so treadmill was the call. did an 11 mile tempo at Goal Marathon Pace - 1:11:28, spot on 6:30 pace, was cruising along until the machine shut off at 60 minutes, 9 miles into the run and 8 into the tempo portion, took a quick stop before the machine rebooted, good mental test though to see if I could get back on the tempo and I did, in fact finished with a little faster pace the last 2 miles, overall 13.1 in  under 1:28, I felt the effort, but it was a good test of the pace I need to hold at Boston for an extended duration

16.5 on the treadmill tonight, not my first choice but blizzard of the century today made that decision easy, treadmill shuts off at an hour so I did 8.2 and 8.3 on each section, 1:59:30 total for 16.5, 7:15 avg pace - did uptempo strides at the end, good workout, but definitely feeling the mileage

good speedwork today, got out for a mile warmup then hit a 6 mile tempo: 6:02, 5:57, 6:02, 6:00, 5:55, 6:03 (uphill for most of it), total 36:00 for 6 miles on the nose, 6:00 pace. Had 5 miles in 29:56 and 4 miles in 23:54 at miles 1-5. Very even splits - all within 8 seconds of each other, very solid day and I am extremely happy with the results. good speed with heavy shoes after a week of high mileage on a training run

Really good long run today, beautiful weather, upper 50s for the whole thing and light winds. Slowest mile was 7:02, fastest was 6:46, average pace for the run was 6:56, 18.1 in 2:05:24 total, one of the fastest long training runs I've ever done. Took 2 gu's but was feeling it at the end, probably a combo of the pace and the mileage over the last 3 days, 27.1 in the last 2 days, 36.6 in the last 3, ice bath afterwards

warm day, 75 degrees, felt really easy for the first 3, after that though my legs felt pretty much like jelly, kept it steady pace wise but felt tired the last half - 1:13:XX, 7:09 avg pace for the 10.3 miles

really strong long run tonight, 43 degrees at the start with ne winds and started raining about halfway through, stayed really steady throughout, 19.6 in 2:18:34, 7:04 average pace, most miles were clustered pretty close together, slowest was 7:14, fastest was 6:53 but most were right around 7:00, negative split the run by about 20 seconds, 1:09:27 at 9.8, so just a smooth even effort, hit a rough patch around mile 14-16, right after my 2nd gu, just felt a little light headed, kept pushing though and it passed - a good lesson to remember, total mileage in the last 6 days is 75.1, that is an all-time best for me in 6 days + strides
