I'm glad that I got a do-over this week. Last week was so miserably bad. No sleep, working late, terrible food, and 2 key missed workouts. This week was much better. I somehow made time to fit my runs in. I had to cut one run a couple miles short because of time constraints, but I got all the quality work in on that one anyway.
Yesterday I did a 14 mile run along the Olentangy River. There is a really nice greenway that goes along the Olentangy and Scioto rivers for miles and miles. I did an out an back and negative split by 4 minutes. I finished strong with miles in the 7:20s and felt great. I especially thought the run was a good one since it followed a tempo run the day before. The lower temperatures and humidity make a huge difference. Still, though, 3:00:00 ain't in my 2010 Crystal Ball.
I've done all my running in the evenings this week because I've been traveling and working early mornings to coincide with the work day in India (great). I MUCH prefer morning runs. An evening 14 miler when you don't finish work until 6:30 will really mess up your eating schedule!
