6 miles around the old neighborhood in Lexington, KY.  Dad's house to my high school and back.  Running mostly through a neighborhood where I thought I might see some old buddies from high school really helped to make me run faster than I would have at home in IN (pathetic). 

40:40 on some hills and only the first mile in less than MP - happy with effort, but sore.  This whole week needs to be a recovery week. Building up nice and slow with previous weekly mileages: 32, 38, 45, 50... I'l shoot for 40 this week.  Then up to 55-60 next week.

Anytime Fit. PM treadmill run - 8 mi. @ 8mph most of the way.  mile 6 @ MP, which equates to 9.2mph for me, and 0.25mi. @ 10k (~10mph) ?? The 10k-vs.-MP paces don't seem comparable?

8 mi. total - 59:40

~30 min. of strength stuff after run:

lunges with weights, squat press with light weight on machine, some ab stuff, some hip reps, mostly legs and core, you get the idea.

While working out, I am reminded of why the gym is not for me - some random dude I don't know has been eying me the whole time (prolly cause of my short shorts) while running and going through my light strengthening work.  Then I'm in the middle of a set of abs on the floor next to a machine I have just hopped off of, and he struts up and loudly says, "you mind if a work in a cycle?"  I'm like, "Sure, I'm done, pant, pant (in between situps)"  -- HE then rips the weight assist bar out that I had been using and loads on some weight to resist - clearly for much "stronger men", very loudly grunts out about 5 reps and slams the weight down and struts off...

wow - he showed me. :)
