Travel day. I am attending a meeting in Boston this week. I have a talk in 12 hr so am going to get some sleep now. I'm still a minute long but I'm sure when up on "stage" I will talk faster.

Travel running. I hit the treadmill this morning because I didn't want to get lost and miss my talk. It went very well and I've already received a number of great comments. the run was a little quick do to time and being on the treadmill. Typical acceleration run. The weather is amazing here. I took a walk around the park in between sessions and it amazes all the people, a true "city" feel.

Avg. 6:46

Trouble sleeping last night so I slept in and then ran on the treadmill after dinner. Did a hard run on the treadmill, acceleration style. It felt so good.

Did make it up early this morning. Did a run to Harvard from my hotel near Beacon Hill along Charles River. There were a lot of people out this morning and it was fun "racing" the crew teams. The extra bodies had me pushing. In the evening I did a walk along the Freedom Trial and then to the Long Wharf to see the nighttime skyline.

Avg. 7:09 HR 168

Same run as yesterday but went a couple bridges further west before turning around. I also took it a bit slower. I'd turned the last few days into bit of races.

Avg. 7:57 HR 148

Did 9 miles on my own. Took a bit of it fast running some along the Des 10K. 

Then when I got home both girls insisted on running some with me so I did 0.75 mi with my oldest and just over a 0.25 mi with my youngest.

It was a super windy day!!!

For the 9 mi portion.

Avg. 7:06 HR 170 but I think there was static as it has a bunch with maxHR > 200
