Thursday is for meetings!

A busy day today, running around town, meetings, hospital, such are Thursdays. My favorite paper is the Thursday paper. Thursdays are often a quiet night at home.
Usually a good run is up for Thursday, but today was a survival run. I felt sore and slow. I just tried to get in the miles. 5 in 52:53. Not a good pace but I'm still on the tail end of this cold that seems unshakable.
I'm hoping for a time at the track tomorrow. I need some mile repeats. Hope for 6 x 1600. Saturday will be 6.2. Training for the Marathon is winding to a close!

Looking ahead to next week:
Monday- 10-9:15's
Tues-3-easy
Wed- 8-9:40's
Thurs-5-easy
Fri- off
Saturday(3/28)- 1/2 Marathon race. I plan on running a little faster than marathon pace (8:40's)with a two mile warm-up and two mile cool-down giving me 17+ miles.
Then I begin the taper!
Cooled off down here but still in the 50's-peace!
