PM - 10 after work. legs were tired from another 10-hour shift, plus working 8 of the past 9 days, but i get the next two days off and the added bonus was this was the first time i've felt like myself in over two weeks.

also huge shoutout to Sunbeam Xpress Heat because their heating pad broke 4 days after i bought it. wouldn't have been worth getting if i shoplifted it

AM - 5. it's the precipice of spring in the south so a lot of rain on the horizon, so probably a lot of treadmill running on the horizon too. 

PM - 12. ran without music and had this(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WmMj4lfpdc) going on in a loop in my head the last 6 miles

AM - 5. slept in so gonna get a little less recovery if i'm tripling like i hope to.

Noon - 10. legs having been sore after last night's 12, first mile or two felt like i'd be lucky to get the average pace under 8 minutes but i started thinking about the next couple of months of training, and before i knew it i felt really good. not just good as in "my last 2 weeks were 20 and 60 miles so i'm not in the best shape" good either, just felt great. was cruising those last 30 minutes or so.

PM - 12 in the rain. quads still sore, so just easy running letting the miles rack up.

AM - 5 easy. put it off for a few hours because the quads seem a little more sore than the day before. it's not like i ran 27 miles in 12 hours or anything :) so it looks like a "two steps forward, one step back" scenario. i think i can do 5 miles early in the morning and 12 in the evening no problem right now, but with the quad soreness i think adding that third run in between could be detrimental. so, i'll probably just do the 17 mile days until friday, 10 miles after work on the weekend, and try adding that 3rd run next week. might skip tonight's 12 just to let the legs heal up a bit from yesterday.

AM - 5 on the treadmill. stormed something crazy all night and morning. wasn't sure on the incline to offset the fact that treadmill running is easier than real running so set it to 1.0, also find it very hard to run on a treadmill mentally so kept speeding up the pace every couple of minutes by 0.3-0.5 mph to make it more exciting, started at 8.0 and ended at 11.0. felt good once the pace got in 5-minute territory.

PM - 12 easy. cold and raining, everyone's favorite running weather.

AM - 5. it was snowing this morning!

PM - 12. ran the first 4 breaking in the zoom fly's. no cap, if i was forced at gunpoint tomorrow to race a half-marathon in those or birkenstocks i'd choose the sandals. most uncomfortable shoes i've ever ran in by a mile(no pun intended). i'll give them the benefit of the doubt since i was running on grass and i assume they're meant for the roads and give them a second chance on the next tempo run i do. with that being said, best i've felt on a 12 this week.

PM  - ~15 after work. watch was nearly dead so just ran for a tad over 2 hours, long enough that even on a bad day i'd have hit 15 miles at least 5 minutes before i stopped.

so happy to be back to triple digits!!
