6 miles before work, nice and cool, but in the dark the whole way.  Story of my life.

6 miles during lunch, not really feeling it today so kept it all at a jog.

8 miles - Early before work.  Felt really good from the start and went a little faster at the end.  I've found it usually takes 2 days to recover from weights and get back to a better running mojo.

6.5 miles - During lunch.   Started out slow, "felt it" after 26 minutes so then proceeded with a couple short steep hill climbs and short fartleks (6 reps).

6 miles - During lunch.  Felt flat so went real easy the whole way.  Days like this have me wondering how I'll ever finish another marathon.

Carlos Slim, the richest man in the world, says the three-day work week will happen and that we'd all be better off if we slowed down.  Agree, but not sure if I want to work until 75 to make that happen.

7.5 miles - During lunch on a cool overcast day.  Feeling better after 36 minutes so proceeded to do 6 x reps of strides and short fartleks.

11 miles - Treadmill run at mostly easy pace. Did a handful of 5 minute faster paced reps with equal parts rest.
