6.25 easy miles on the TM.  Avg pace was probably right around 7:50.  Perfect for what I wanted today.  Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.

6.75 at the gym.  6x800 with 400 rest.  Warmed up with 1 mile and then did the first two 800s on the track at the LC.  My watch told me both were right around 3:10, but that felt too easy.  My guess is that they were both a bit short.  A TM opened up and I did the next 4 800s there.  I did all of them at 6:35 pace and my rests were around 9:00 pace.  Ideally I would do these 800s at 10k pace, which should be around 6:10s or so, but I'm just getting started.  I will drop the times as I progress over the next few weeks.

6.0 easy on the TM.  Stomach issues or I would have went a bit longer.  Avg pace was right around 7:45ish.

7.50 in 59:11.  Decided to run outside this morning.  My phone said it was 10 degrees, but I bundled up and overall I was just warm enough.  Did about 1 mile at MP, but I forgot to switch my watch over to auto lap, so I didn't get splits.

5.50 on the TM.  Some stomach issues, so I quit.  Definitely leaving some miles out there this week.

11.60 in 1:31:58.  Avg pace 7:55.  Started at 5:30 and ran the 300 West route.  Was around 14 degrees when I started, but I was bundled up pretty good.  After about 10 miles my legs were getting tired. 

Lifted for 40 min and then ran 3.40 more on the TM to get to 15 total for the day.

Good first week of getting back to some regular training.  Hope to build on this going forward.
