Nice weather - 50 degrees in January in Indiana is pretty warm.  Testing out New (Old borrowed from dad) Nishiki 10 speed - its been sitting in my dad's garage for years now - it had a couple loose bolts and adjustments that it needed, but overall it rode well for the 13.6 mi. out and back on people trail to downtown Columbus bike shop.  Anyway that took about an hour, and then ran a moderate but tight 4.4 mi. - 32:20.

Ouch! - this was tough today - the intent was to run 2 x 10k at MP

The first one was okay, second rep - not so good.  Oh well, it was the longest hard run I have had since the marathons last fall.  The weight is looking good, the speed is almost there for about 5mi. - 10k, now to get the mileage up...  The goal is MP - 6:45s, rec./easy runs - 8:00s 

Looks like I've got some work to do!

Good job Nathan on doing this at the end of your 70 mi. week!

Wanted to go out and get 1st 20 miler in.  Turned out well with very consistent splits and decent effort.  Ran 5.1 of it with the dog - was almost attacked again by another loose dog in this neighborhood. :(  I hate irresponsible pet owners.  5.1 mi. in neighborhood with Indy - 38:50 (7:46, 7:48, 7:44, 7:30, 7:41).  Dropped Indy off at house and quick drink of gatorade mix and back out the door.  Out to Cummins main factory and back with a loop around neighborhood:

7:23, 7:25, 7:35, :24, :25, :30, :30, :31, :31, :32, :36, :25, :32, :14, :40, 0.5 - 3:54

 I definitely hit the wall at that last mile and a half, but overall a comfortable pace at around 7:30.
