Did 10 x 400m at 10k pace (40:00=96 secs). I concentrated on counting my steps for the first five and about 40 for each 200m (=200 step/min at 96/lap). Times were 97, 97, 96, 93, and 95 for the first 5. It felt harder than 400m should though and, somewhat dejected, I thought I'd just run a relaxed 2x1mile at probably 7:00 pace or whatever felt right. Well, I looked at my watch at 100m, expecting to see 26, and saw 24, which was the 96/lap pace I had just been doing. I think the forced fast turnover made my relaxed turnover faster, so I kept with the 400s alternating relaxed and fast turnover, doing the the next 4 in 96, 94, 96, and 96. (lost count and only did 9 total).
Friday 5.99 0:57:01 9:31
At Disneyworld. It was totally flat but felt like 80 degrees and 100% humidity. I felt like crap.
The park trumped running and took a zero.

Sat PM - 3.20 0:27:23 8:33
Took son to pool for swim meet. Got there at 6:50 am. Got home after 2pm. Had a blinding headache and laid down instead of running. Got out around 5pm and felt better after I ran three at a decent clip. Form felt like it clicked.
Sun - 10.15 1:20:36 7:56 164 Felt good last night and wanted to run around 8/mile today. Felt great and form felt right. At faster pace, cadence was ~185 without thinking about it. Did 2 laps in 69:47. Garmin says 9.00 miles for two laps (7:45), but the Garmin has a bit of a problem on the trail and I believe it is 9.14 (measured with a calibrated bike), which is 7:38 pace. Jogged another mile+ at ~10 min/mile.
Week - 52.9
First time above 50 since the week of 23 August before my injury.
