    Good morning!
    Just wanted to thank you for having such a great log…it is very helpful for me esp. in the am before a run…coffee than I am off! Feeling strong but have gained weight this month and not happy about that…it is 6:14 and I know you are half way on your run and I am still messing around with no socks on and no gatorade made…

      Thanks, Reem. I hope you had a good run this AM. I had little difficulty with the speed work. Did the 1200s in 5:43 and 5:38, and the 400s in 1:41 and 1:40. Hoping for a good fast time this Saturday. By the way, I didn’t get out until 6:20 this morning…lazy guy…
