PM - 6 mi. easy around the fairgrounds - 47:32.  75 degrees and overcast. Another beautiful spring day.  20 minutes of legs and abs - a lot of stretching and foam rolling afterward - a little tight from yesterdays speed workout. 

Good luck Boston runners - I am very jealous.  Looks like our baby has dropped - only a couple days to go until I will be a father, if I had to guess.  He might be a Patriot's Day baby :)  I might be enviously watching the coverage from the hospital on Monday.

PM: easy 6 mi. in the rain - 70 degrees and a light rain coming down the whole run - made it fun, but a little slick in the muddy spots. - 45:xx.  Looks like the local 5k/10k race will be the extent of my weekend if I am not rushing the wife to the hospital.  MAybe Carmel Marahton is in the cards for next weekend.

PM: Run around the neighborhood to get the heart rate up, briefly - built up to do a couple of strides.  3.2 - 21:21.  New shoes! -- Ravenna 4, Black and Red.  Brooks Ravenna series has been good to me - lighter weight well cushioned and neutral (I think)

AM race 1 mile from my house.  CR series - 10k and 5k races run simultaneously.  The usual suspects - went a little quick on the first mile - got sucked in by the 5k runners (only 2 ahead of us leading 10k guys)  Hung around the top 2 guys for a couple miles and really started struggling.  Not feeling the greatest today - GI problems due to poor diet choices the last couple days (the beer and fried foods from late last night in particular), and some tightness in the back made for some slow and sloppy last couple miles.  Also, the course ran pretty long - last minute changes had to be made to the course due to construction, so no big deal.

2 mi. WU

6.42 mi. - 38:52:  5:42, 5:58, 6:03, 6:05, 6:10, 6:21, 0.42mi. - 2:32

1.6 mi. CD

The new Ravenna 4's are wonderful!
