pm--8 I had one of those terrible days. Not only did frustrating things happen, I consequently missed practice and didn't react well. By the way, if you're reading this, sorry, Dave. Needless to say, it took me a while to talk myself into a run. I finally decided to have some fun. In an act of payback, I spied the DH workout and ran a modified Michigan on the tready. Albeit the paces were more like 10k and half than 5k and 10k. The tready was @ 1.5%. I ran 1 mile warm-up, 1600 @ 8.5, 2000 @ 8, 1200 @ 8.7, 2000 @ 8, 800 @ 8.8, 2000 @ 8, and 400 @ 9, followed by .75 cool-down. The workout itself was roughly 10k in 45:05. Nothing too quick, but it was still work. Today was a good day.

pm--8.5 Ran a backwards loop around Santa Clara via Rachel Dr. It was nice out this afternoon, and the Frees feel pretty good. I kept a pretty good pace. It usually ends up that way when I'm on my own.

pm--4.5 Ran the warm and cool w/ the girls, both at a good pace, sandwiched around their mile time trial. I meant to add more when I got home, but my right foot is exceptionally tender. Not sure what that means. This week may be a little more relaxed anyway.

am--6 Usual morning route. Felt decent enough. 

pm--5.5 Ran to Starbucks then hit our annual AC ice cream stop on the way back. Finished w/ 4 x 200, all in the high 30s. I think the ice cream turned to cheese in my stomach.
