Lunch time - 6 miles easy on Pennsy - 53 min.

Alot more time to train coming soon.  Seymour District has hired me back in a new mgmt. role!  20 minute commute versus 1:10 minute commute.  Lots of bonus time coming my way!

5AM: Track workout: 10x400m - roughly 5k pace with 200m jog recovery.  Pretty bad.  90sec. down to about 85min.  5 mi. total - 35:14

Lunch run at work in Greenfield:  4mi. ATish . 6:50-7:10 pace  6mi. total - 44:50

Doing pretty well at keeping up with the training so far.  100mi./week is challenging with this commute.

9AM - Long Run w/ Pace Game: Set out on a mission to go 30 miles this morning... 

Fell into about 7:30 pace, and switched the workout to a Pace Game: Hit as close to 7:32 as possible for 15miles.  Ran out Ppl Trails for HMar, and turned around.  Struggled after about 15.  Carrying a handheld of Tailwind, but only drank about half of it.  Pretty warm by about 11am ~55deg.  Shed all the layers and met the family for pizza.

Frosty 5.5 mile trail Race in Brown Co. SP.  Trail 4 and around Ogle Lake around Trail 8 loop and back.  Rainy cold afternoon, with a lot of mud, water, and hilliness.  Good trail race, and was added to the Race series this year.  3rd overall behind a couple of younger dudes that smoked me on the uphills.
