 Five days was certainly too long of a break, but I did a massive amount of yard work Saturday and Sunday. When you let it go for five months, several of them very rainy, the lawn and weeds tend to get a bit cataclysmic. So you can't say I didn't get a workout in over the weekend. On Friday and Monday I was just lazy, though.

So I came back with a small workout, after track practice tonight. Mike's daughter is running on our team, so he showed up to watch her and then we did a little work. Really windy day, so the backstretch was always a chore. We ran a mile-plus to warm-up, then 5x800 at 3:00 per, with a lap in between each. We hit that 3 almost right on every one, I think only the first one was 3:05. Then another mile to cool down.

Good to be out again, I was energized a bit after a great practice with the kids. And Mike just read 'Once a Runner' so he had some juice as well. I almost left him to do another 25 800s on his own.

Beach Drive w/Mike, started dark and early but it was warmer than usual. Quiet out there today. Good run for my first long one in a few weeks, 7:10-7:30 pace the whole way. Only problem in the legs was rust, stopped and stretched and I felt fine. Recovered the week a bit with this one. 1:18:20
