April 21st (Monday): The advantage of heading home for the weekend is leftovers! Double stuffed potatoes for lunch. Piece of cheesecake. Chocolate bunny after work. 10+ miles (67:49) at 7pm. Beautiful night out. 70 degrees out.

April 24th (Thursday): 10 miles (72:35) in the evening with Goup. An easy run out and back along the bike path to keep it flat and relaxed.

April 25th (Friday): 3 miles (18:54) on my own in the morning. 8 miles (54:28) after work. Quicker runs overall today, but felt good.

April 26th (Saturday): Dog sitting for the weekend. Hit up the track in the afternoon for a 4 x mile workout. 3++ mile (24:13) warm-up around the neighborhoods. Workout went well. 5:07, 5:04, 4:59, 4:55. Total time for the 6 miles: 32:51. 2.5 mile cooldown (16:05). 11.5 miles on the day.

Over to a friend's house down the street to hang out with two dogs and sleepover.

85 miles for the week and a quality week of work. For those reading this post, I am looking to catch up on the blog by the end of tonight. I will just be posting mileage of what I remember and some pictures along with the weeks.
