Build some more...

 Still in base camp three mode....with a 10% increase in time/distance planned for this week. Today is another perfect day for running, 70ish, nice southern breeze (makes me feel fine) cloudy and drizzly.
  My plan was 37.5 minutes out and then back with a projected total of 75 minutes. I wound up turning this into a tempo run, I decided at the turnaround to push it hard for three miles, one all uphill, the next two net downhill. a 9:35, 8:54, 8:40, man it felt good to be able to push the pace again, especially w/o pain in the heel! I'm a living testimony that there is hope! You can heal and run again. I have gotten race fever! Races can surely aid in building speed! I am going to find a flat one next time!! Today, 7.43 miles/ 1:11:49-9:39's.
Peace!!

Yes, your patience and dedication is admirable! I'm glad it has paid off. I think you're running longer than me now! I need to step up my game.
