Really slow 9 miles this morning, but whatever I got it done. 5 miles left for the week…… Maybe I’ll do it tonight so I can have a rest day tomorrow.
And then I think I’m going to go back to a 40 mi week because my knees are hurting. Then see what happens for my last week of summer training!

11 miler planned for tomorrow morning. time for bed!

I’ve been feeling so slowwwww lately. I was finally getting speed back but then my coach upped my mileage so I’m back down to 9:30 pace and I feel so slow. It’s hard when you know how fast you used to be. I guess I’ll get some speed back when it starts getting closer to the season. 

Me toooooo

Just cannot bring myself to go run another 3 miles or bike 30 min before class….
So I guess I’ll be cross training after class at 9:30! Better than nothing, and I get really restless after sitting for 5 hours at class.

Easy 8 that actually felt really hard and it was more like 7.4 miles……….
Why is it so hard to run by myself? 😩

Gonna just wear my CEP sock on my left calf every run because when I don’t I can feel the start of shin splints and it terrifies me.
