72 minute trail run with Bryant.  We climbed quite a bit the first half and then came back down.  It's hard to say for sure how far it was, but we'll call it 9.5 miles.  Got home and did 8 minutes of abs.

AM: 9 miles easy @ 6:39 pace.  Met at Riverdale Parkway at 5:45 with Bret, Bryant, and Steve.  This is looking like it will be a weekly Tuesday morning group, which is good.

PM: 3.42 Miles @ 6:23 pace.  I didn't plan on a second run today.  But I finally gave in and bought a GPS watch (Garmin 610) last week and it arrived in the mail today.  So, I had to try it out right?  I even tried out the heart rate monitor.  I am not sure yet how often I will use it, but it's still nice to have.

11.72 miles @ 6:05 avg. pace.  11-mile progression run followed by .72 cooldown.  Mile splits, using my new garmin :), were 7:07 6:47 6:39 6:30 6:18 6:09 5:52 5:35 5:24 5:11 4:53.  I felt pretty good.  I actually felt better on the second half of the run than on the first, slower half.  This is will probably be my last workout of this type of quality and quantity until after UVM next week.  I'll start to back things off a bit from this point until the race, get the legs feeling fresh.

7.44 miles easy @ 7:06 pace. Ran the north loop on base. I had only one goal for this run, and that was to run slower than 7 min pace.  Mission accomplished.

No run today.  I had a minor operation scheduled for this morning to get my esophagus scoped and stretched.  I was told not to run until later in the evening, but I decided to just take the day off.  I'm meeting some of the guys for a long run tomorrow morning though, and then I will really back things off next week in anticipation of the marathon.

15 miles @ 6:33 avg. pace.  Met up with Bryant, Steve, and Jed at the Riverdale Parkway.  We went North and looped the 21st Street Pond twice and back for 10 miles at an easy pace.  Then we went out and back on a 4-mile tempo run for miles 11-14.  Splits were 5:20, 5:25, 5:10, 5:23.  I didn't feel too great today, but I got through the run okay with a good effort at the end.  I'm excited to taper a bit next week and let the legs get refreshed.
