Easy 4 mi with MP last 0.25 mi.  Obtained a "runner's high" for the first time in a long time.  That's a good sign for me.

One of those days.  Easy run, but was doubting my ability to run a PR at Boston the whole time.  I kept thinking about the things I haven't done and how the effort level felt harder than it should for 4 measily miles.  No "runner's high" today!!

Easy run (8:00-8:30) followed by easy stretching.  I'm more stiff now than during peak training weeks!  Another easy 2 mi tomorrow and then heading out first thing Sat. morning.  I still can't believe I will be chasing ghosts and unicorns on Monday.

Easy run in sunny and warm weather. Did 4 x form drills (high knees & butt kicks) followed by approx. 50-75m "fast". Easing into a carb repletion phase today. Still dealing with some head congestion, but all systems are a go.
