AM: Spin 45 min. with 10-12 x 1 min hard intervals

PM: Easy run 8 miles.  I felt like garbage before this run, but I thought it was all the garbage I ate this past weekend.  After running it now feels like I'm coming down with something.  Body aches all over and I'm beat tired.

REST

Did the old fever shake, toss, and roll all night long.  I feel a lot better this morning and could probably run later today, but better not.

AM: Easy progression run 4 mi to 7:00 pace + strength training.

PM: Easy run 8 mi over a hilly course.  Beautiful day here in Iowa today.  Nothing else to write about because I was all by my lonesome.  Need to start up stretching regularly again.

Easy run of 8 mi.  Legs were sore after yesterday's strength workout and hills.  It just never gets easier does it?  Honestly, I've done several workouts like the one yesterday and you would think that the body would have adpated to accept an easy run the following day.  I guess this is no different than the heavy weight lifting I did years ago in that I was sore somewhere every day of the week (especially remember the chest and glutes).  The difference being in powerlifitng you can work a different part of the body while the other part recovered.  I know there is the hard/easy approach for endurance sport, but the legs never get a full break.  Yes I'm crabby today!!!

Long run 21 mi. (7:49 avg).  I left work and ran on a bike trail, but instead of doing a simple out and back as planned, I decided to go exploring one way.  Then called home from a nearby town for a ride back.  I had enough energy to just keep running, but daylight ran out and I knew my family would be getting worried.  Terrific weather with 70 temp. and I had a terrific view of the sun setting since I was away from the city and in the countryside at that point.  It's amazing how quickly the sun slips away after it reaches the horizon.  Simply a great and liberating run overall.  I really enjoy running over the countryside.  God willing, planning to go a bit farther next time and try to reach the next town.  I'll be sure to give the Mrs. a heads up though and bring a cell along.
