AM: Another slow and easy 6.5 mi.  Weather was perfect.  Ball of my right foot was bothersome during the last mile.  Not sure what the scoop is there.

PM: Ran 6.5 mi picking up the pace the second half.  Ball of right foot was less of an issue the faster I ran.  Planning a long run tomorrow, but with this foot thing I might need to cut it short.

Busy tomorrow and on the weekend so I did a long run today.  Left the house and ran an easy 25 miles point to point (8:00-9:00 pace).  I called my wife near the end and had her come and pick me up out on the bike path in the country.  I had a food stop at 20 miles.  Next time I hope to make this run at least 30 miles

AM: Easy 8.8 mi. Continue to build on more volume this week.

PM: Easy 9.5 mi with some hard fartleks near the end.  I even caressed a 5 min pace at one point and at that pace confirmed that I carry too much weight.

AM: Another easy 7 mi.  The usual Tuesday tired legs this morning.  The strange thing is I get stronger as the week progesses.  Probably 80% mental.  Finished reading the book Once a Runner and now started reading the book The Perfect Mile.  Very good book so far. PM: Easy 3.5 mi + TP 2 mi + Easy 4 mi with the last 2.5 mi completed barefoot in KSOs. Felt strong and in control, unlike this morning.

AM: Just another 8.1 mi run around the neighborhood and lake.  Beautiful morning for running.

PM: Easy 10 mi out and back on a bike trail.  Top of right foot hurts.  I think its from too tight of shoes during a run yesterday.  Not real painful, but definitely annoying at times.  Hopefully it clears up.

Did a combo run/walk 25 mi on a bike trail.  Foot is bothersome at times and I'm certain it's some tendonitis based on how it reacts while I run.

Rest day and watched "Victory" with the kids.  I haven't seen that movie in many years.  I think it's a real cinema treasure and one of the best sports movies ever made.  It captures the most pure victor and spoils secenes at the very end.  If you don't get fired up after that scene then you need to check your pulse!

AM: Ran 6.5 mi easy.  Not sure how the week will shake out running wise.  My right foot is still sore, but manageable from a running perspective.  Hurts the first 2 mi then gradually feels better, but then is sore again when done running. 

PM: Ran 6.5 mi easy.  Foot not as bad as this morning, but still has issues.

Spent the morning covering 31 mi.  Really not feeling too bad and can see how taking scheduled walking breaks of 100-200m is the way to go for covering longer distance.  Nothing to eat before, but began fueling after 1 hr. of activity.  My right foot was not an issue during the run, but is still a little tender when pressure is placed on it.  Finished in 4:45:00 (9:10 avg).

Easy 22 mi ran as out and back on bike trail.  All miles at 8-9 min pace, but ran the 2nd half faster (low 8s).  Still a bit hot and humid, but not as bad when sun is clouded over and wind picks up.
