AM: Easy run 4 mi. Cooler and wet morning. Plan to keep everything really easy for 1-2 more weeks. No orthotics.

PM: Another easy 6.35 mi.  Today's weather is a total match to race day last monday (40s, cloudy, and windy).  I had flashbacks the entire way.  I think running in this kind of weather will not be the same going forward.  Orthotics.

AM: Very early and slow trot of 4 mi on the TM while waiting on the southwestern sausage egg bake to cook in the oven.  My turn to cook for the men's breakfast & Bible study this morning.  Made a healthier version of the dish by cutting back the meat and chesse, using turkey sausage instead of swine, and whole wheat tortillas instead of the white flour variety.  Serve with sour cream, salsa, and mixed fruit.  Very nummy.  No orthotics, on my feet that is.

PM: Easy run 6.4 mi over lunch hour.  Took a hilly route.  Everything feels good for the most part.  No orthotics.

AM: Ran 6 mi easy before work.  Had a sense that this would be my last day at work and I was right.  I found out that 5/14 is my last day.  I was let go with about 75 other people.  So I'm firing up the old resume and hitting the bricks.  I'm just glad I have the good Lord for help and the blessing he's given me in running.  What year this has been already!!  First completing Boston and now this news before my b-day on Monday.  Ups and downs anyone?

PM: Ran 6.5 mi at an unemployed pace.   No orthotics.

AM: Ran 7 mi on the TM.  Couldn't sleep so I was up at 4 this morning.  I kept thinking about what I did wrong at my job.  I wasn't let go because of performance reasons, but already starting to blame myself for getting released and putting my family through this stress.  I'm very fortunate in many ways, but still like to really hammer on myself.  I don't give myself any middle ground, it's either pass or fail, thumbs up or thumbs down with me you know?  I just have to keep Jon's advice and wail on with my running.

PM: Very easy 2 mi with my oldest daughter and then a faster 2 mi aftwerwards.  Finally got the old resume updated.  I think it's good to go.

Just an easy 15 mi on a bike trail.  Perfect weather day.  Ran a bit faster at the end, with the last 0.5 mi the hardest.  No orthotics.
