Morning run, no wind, temp 48'
Nice morning for a run. I've been doing 2 quarter mile sprints once a day during my runs to let my legs know I want some speed. The fastest I've been doing the quarters is 75 seconds. Anyway, this morning my body finally found the next gear and I ran the 2 quarter mile sprints on a down sloping section in 70 seconds each. I really had to push to get to that speed but it felt great. In High school I would average 68 seconds for a whole mile now I only get 70 seconds on a down sloping road, running just a quarter mile. Anyway 70 seconds felt really fast but I'm hoping to get it to 65 if my mind and body will work together.

Noon run, temp 70'
My legs were tired. I must have used up the fresh legs in the morning. Took it easy.
