Noon run, sunny, temp. 75'

I mixed in 4 quarter mile strides in the 1:25-1:30 range.    I feel like I need to get my legs moving faster every now and then so they don't forget how.  I need to get the strides closer to 1:15 quarters.

Morning run, sunny, temp 60'

I wanted to accomplish two goals on this run.  Run the entire 6.6 miles in under 7 minute mile pace and run 3 of the miles in a 6:20 mile pace.

Everything was looking good until 2.3 miles into my fast 3 miles.  My left quad started to cramp just a little.  Last time it did that I kept running and then it hurt for 3 or 4 days so I was smarter this time and just stopped my run and waited 2 or 3 minutes for my legs to gain back strenght.  I then commenced again but not at the 6:20 pace.  I'm getting to old.  Every time I try to get faster something always comes up.  At least I got my under 7 goal.

Time 45:18,  Mile avg. - 6:52

Early Afternoon run, mostly cloudy, temp. 73'

I decided to put in a little speed. My legs have forgotten the fast gear. Everything starts to rattle like an old car when I put it in high gear.

The Tendon-bum-itis was acting up.  The last few days of some faster miles must have done it.
