76F, 73%, N 17-25 mph.  Finally a north wind - the cold front will arrive today!  Too late for this morning's run, but next week will be awesome.

7:35 AP today.  Mostly a progressive run - started out around 8:00 pace and worked my way down to GMP for the last 3.  I did the prison loop road today but turned short of the front gate this time so I didn't get followed by perimeter security.

62F, N 10 mph.  8:46 AP.  Obviously the cold front arrived, felt great.  It should stick around most of this week, too.  Too bad I need a couple easy days, but I'm thinking mile repeats on Wednesday!

AM - 53F.  7 miles @ 8:20 pace.  That was about as slow as I could go with those unbelieveable temps!

PM - 87F.  4 more, 8:33 pace.  Nice to finally be able to do a PM run outside.

59F.  Man I love cool weather.  The workout today was 5 x 1 mile at 10K pace, with a quarter mile recovery inbetween (worked out to 2-minute recoveries).  I wanted to test out 6:30 as a 10K pace because I wasn't really sure where I was at, fitness-wise.

First, 8 warmup miles, AP 8:00 on the nose.

Then the repeats were 6:31, 6:29, 6:28, 6:30, 5:51.

That last one isn't even a typo!  6:30 wasn't challenging me too much (did I just say that?) so I put the pedal down for the last repeat.  I was actually in the 5:40s most of the way but met up with my biggest hill with about a quarter mile to go and could not keep the pace uphill.

Finished with an 8:27 cooldown mile, for an overall AP of 7:29.

I think I will have a legit shot at sub-40 in a couple weeks if the weather is like this.

Danielle is out of town and I got the kids all day...fun, but unfortunately the little one does not have preschool on Thursday so I was stuck inside - 6 TM miles, 8:49 AP.

72F (67F start, 77F finish).  Didn't start until about 9am as I had to drop the kids off at their respective schools first; fortunately it wasn't too warm yet.  7:46 AP.
