AM: WU over to hills 2x 4:00 LT Hills - Carr Hill Rd. x 2.  Heart rate around 180 for duration of each.  Felt very hard near the top both times.  Easy jogs back down as recovery.  4x20-30sec. hill sprints on the way home, as well.   8mi. total - about an hour

PM: WU over to track behind school.  Abbreviated workout in the cold windy rain - VO2 efforts.  6x~200m (0.11mi.) sprints.  The track is a pitiful excuse for an oval.  Its a square with some tight radii'ed curves.   4:30 pace down to 4:12 pace.  4 miles total - 30 min.

PM: easy 7 miles - 53:00.  Started to run home from work for another Seymour-to-Columbus 20 miler, and turned around after about 30 minutes of feeling some issue with the left groin/hip.

On the fence about the upcoming 50 miler in December...

2x10min. "vigorous" core and leg strength stuff to get the HR up before braving the 20 degree weather for a run workout.  

WU, 10x400m LT w/ 1min. rec. jog - 87, 83, 87, 84, 86, 83, 79, 84, 81, and 81. CD was easy.  HR stayed above 170 avg. during 1min. rec.  This was tough.
