2 out & back 5 mile loops.  Picked up the pace a bit on 2nd loop.  Pleasant evening with very light snow.  Temp near 30.  Well I am over 200 miles for the month.  That is a milestone that I have had my sights on for a while. Now I am going to shatter that goal to bits.

Another rest day and I am not complaining.  Really tired today.  Back at it tomorrow with the start of 4 days of running.  Hoping to hit 1500 miles for the year!

3 Miles out 27:51 (9:16 pace)
3 x .45 hill repeats (9:09 pace)
3 miles back 28:02 (9:20 pace)

Never felt so unrested from a couple of 'rest' days in my life.  Back at it today.  Speaking of today, it is my BT anniversary.  12/26/05.  Holy cow that was a long time ago. 

UPDATE Hill work out.  3 miles to steep hill about .23 up and then back down.  Then return 3 miles were into stiff headwind.  tough session, but glad I did it. 

Scheduled rest day (tomorrow too) I am now at my highest monthly run volume ever with a week left to go.  I must say, overall I feel good. Now on to that real endurance event, last minute Christmas shopping.

Again, over all, not going to complain about this. Two loops. Original plan was 15 or maybe 16 mile loop.  However was enjoying myself and the scenery so much I stretched it out to a 18 mile loop (9 each way) Ended up in some pretty sections of rolling hills through the Kettle Moraine.  Hard not to enjoy roads like 'Big Oak Drive' and 'Virgin Forest Pass.' Only thing that kept me from going farther was lack of water. (yeah 4 bottles for 18 miles ain't going to get it done.)  Way back was slower, which seems odd, as I felt a little better than way out.  Stopped at home to get couple bottles of water and eat a banana and then finished with a negative split 4 mile loop.  So, that does it for the really big weekends as we gradually move towards a taper.  Next weekend will have some longer runs, but no more 44 mile weekends.  Must say after a weekend of long runs with plenty of hills, I feel amazingly well.

Mixed bag. Originally was going to do one 15 mile loop, but this ending up being a 6 mile and then a 9 mile (hilly) route with a stop home between.  Realized I had forgotten to put some stuff in mail box around mile 3 and turned around to go do it, then headed out a different direction for one of my favorites. It was hilly though and after last night's hills, I was pretty cooked near the end and my hip flexors and pelvis were (are) pretty sore.  Weather was chilly (mid 20's) but blue sky and sunshine were very welcome.
