3 Miles and I kept my pace under 9 min/mile!
I did not feel like running, but I got my butt out the door did 2 miles and then did 5x 100m strides. It felt nice to end a run and work on my speed and actively stretch out my legs a bit!
Now this day was an interesting one. A family a few blocks away has chickens and turkeys and their 3 turkeys CHASED me!! Now, that sped me up! But, I like when my day starts out weird, it makes me feel excited to see what will happen next!

LSD 6.3 miles
I kept the pace under 10 min/mile and did a new route, which I didn't realize was uphill the whole way back..... I tried to keep a positive attitude about it, and only complained out loud to myself about 250 times. I'd say that's a success...
Recovery Run of 2.5 miles
Slow, slow, slow and wonderful
When I got back I put on my compression socks, stretched out for a long time, then I enjoyed soaking in an Epsom salt bath. My legs have never felt better than when I went to bed Sunday night after pampering them all day!
17.1! Not a huge increase but still! AND i ran 5x this week!
I'm excited that the Mario Lemieux 6.6k is so quickly approaching!
