First day of following a training program, I dusted off an ond one I found from 5 years ago called "easy" I picked it over the "hard" once cause the hard had up to 95 mile weeks and I aint ready for that.  I don't think milage wise it is much different than what I was already doing, just has some speed work built in. 

Today was 8 miles with 10x100's.  along my run there is a 1 miles stretch on the path that is pretty straight and pretty flat, maybe a slight downhill so I choose that to do my speed work.  I had to go off my garmin for distance so I just did 10X .6 miles on and .4 mile rest for 1 mile.  it's had for the Garmin to settle in for only 6/10's of a mile but I was somewhere between 4:00 and 4:30 pace for all 10, much faster than I do on the treadmill so I felt pretty good but am going to be sore tomorrow.

I'm not just to fix my typos, just going to share my excuse.  I was putting in a new sliding door at my moms house this weekend and had to cut some carpet to fit it in, I ended up cutting more than carpet and chopped of the tip of my finger.  So I have a huge bandage on my left finger and literally fat finger alot.
