This day was a bit strange. A dog came out of the woods about 5 minutes into my first run and followed me the entire run and back to the house. Then on the second run, she followed me again.

Decided to run in Portsmouth with the 4 o'clock practice. Most of this run was with Jeremy Anderson.

I drove one of the vans to the Marietta Indoor Meet. I just ran with anyone I could as they were warming up and cooling down throughout the night.

Ran to the Fire Tower, back to the house, around the trails, and back towards the Fire Tower and back.

Met Keegan at Scioto Trails and did the loop that he did back in the summer. We kept a good pace on all the service roads, probably sub 7:00. The trail sections were not entirely slow either. This was a great run.
Total Miles: 123
Total Time: 15:18:17
This was a good week, the first week of the Spring semester. I have semi-sorted out where and when I will be running throughout the week and I like the amount of times I have scheduled for the trails. This will be the first time I could literally run on grass/trails every run of the week if I wanted to. Although my plantar fascia muscle has been nagging me this week, I am overall in good health. I have felt this type of strain before and it will surely go away within the next few days. It actually did not hurt today on the run. I also ran a little faster on a few of these runs this week, which means I recovered well after the 50k. Looking forward to another good week of pure mileage.
