4 x Mile

August 15th (Thursday): 5:50am wakeup. Rolled around in bed before using the bathroom. Changed up and out for 4 miles (28:15) with Derrick. Protein shake for breakfast. Pasta with green peppers, mushrooms, spinach and beans for lunch. Home by 5pm to change up for the evening workout.

Renee (Mom on Fleet Feet) let me borrow the keys to the high school she works at so I could use the track. Stopped at her house and chatted a bit. Over to the track to warmup 2 miles (13 + strides) around the neighborhoods. Track workout goal was 3-4 x mile (4:45-4:50). Depending on how I felt on the 3rd one, I would decide on whether to do a 4th one. My mindset was 4 x mile.

Cruised each one. 4:51, 4:47, 4:47, 4:44. Kept the half rest honest at 3:18, 3:19, 3:23, 3:07.
32:19 for the 6 miles. 5:23 pace. Sweet. 2 mile (13:22) cooldown. 14 miles on the day. Solid day.

Stopped at Renee's house to drop off the keys and hang out for a bit. Sydney and Addy (Renee's two daughters) were up so played with them for a while. Helped them clean up the living room and timed them cleaning up their playroom. Home by 9pm. Some chicken wraps made for dinner and lunch. Bed by 10:30pm.
