6.5 miles this morning with the boys. Kept it steady climbing hills out on the trails behind the school. Great start to the week. Core and stretch after wards.

3 miles easy over to Hidden Valley after practice.

6 more miles this afternoon pushing Oliver in the stroller. We enjoyed looking at dump trucks and sitting in the grass next to the splash pad. He loves looking and talking about stuff on these runs. I don't enjoy pushing the stroller but it is worth it to spend quality time with Oliver. Plus it gets him outside enjoying nature.

Met up with Dave again for our Tuesday Tempo. We did the DC loop again. Extended it a little bit farther today (4.5 miles). Hit 5:43, 5:34, 5:32, 5:28, and 5:20ish for the last .5 mile. Good run this morning. Legs felt good. 4 miles at practice out on the trails with the girls. Kids club was today. Lots of kids and lots of fun.

Met up with the Circle this morning. We did our DC loop and did 5x3:00min. w/recovery. Felt great on the first 4 but the stomach was having some issues on the last one. Still was a great push for the morning. Just over 10 miles total.

6.15 miles with the girls out on the trails going towards Little Black Mtn. from the Southern Parkway. Felt good to run with them and talk to them about a few things for the upcoming season. I think I am done for the day :)

Ran "The Mutha Loop" today with the Circle. 22 miles total. The wind didn't help because it seemed like a blow dryer. Kept the pace honest throughout the whole run. Hit 5:09 for one of my last miles just for kicks and giggles. 6:35/mile. Good way to end the week with the guys.

I felt good this week and am happy with how it went. Just need to keep it rolling.
