AM -- 4.21 miles, 34:01, 8:04 pace, no HR info
PM -- 4.04 miles, 33:38, 8:19 pace, avg HR = 133, 55% Z3

This is my first of what I hope to be several two-a-day workouts. Since I'm using Mondays and Wednesdays as recovery days now that Will's Hills is out, I'm planning on taking two easy runs on those days.

I find that I enjoy logging the easy miles, knowing that other days are for hard workouts. It gives me a mental break during the week from worrying about the strain of speed workouts or hill work.

In fact, I'm working on a master training calendar for the rest of the year to balance my workouts and extend my weekly mileage. The Houston marathon is 30 weeks away, and I've been mapping out my strategy over the past few days. I'll publish it soon. Sneak preview -- I'm going to try to ramp up my mileage to 70 miles or more for some weeks.

TDLY - 6/25/07 - Kenyan Way, 4 sets of hills, Max HR = 175, Avg HR = 144. Blog Entry.
