60 min @MP, 30min easy, 55min MP pace Wanted to run a bit faster, but realized the best option was to run by feel. Started the rec trail by Wilson in order to run the flattest sections. Felt decent, but many stops to cross streets and the bathroom. I made a rookie mistake to try a new pair of shoes on a long run and had to stop during the easy miles as my feet were killing me. I slogged through the middle and had a hard time getting going. About 15min into the last section, I had to stop again for my feet. I tried tightening my shoes and just taking a minute. This helped and I ran the last 40min stronger than I thought I would. Once done, my poor paws were too and i just wanted to limp home. Lesson learned. Don’t wear new shoes for the first time on a long run

Coudn’t get motivated today, and when I finally got out of hte house, I was totally under dressed. Realized very quickly that there was no way I was going to get my long run in and turned around after 3.5 miles. Unexpectedly finished in the snow.

TM Hill Progression x 3 First 'hill' at easy pace, the 2nd, 20s/m faster and the 3rd another 20s/m faster. I think the TM was a bit fast, but i'm not positive. Ran the first hill at 6.1 to 7%, the 2nd at 6.3 to 6% and the final at 6.5 to 5%
Felt surprising good - this workout def requires focuse the last cycle. It's been too long since I've done this one and I definitely have some work to do.
