90' natural run on the Trinity Trails. Started doing 1' pick-ups every five minutes at the 40' mark. Not a bad run aside from stomach issues. Still feeling very slow though!
Monday, June 27th
45' natural run on the sidewalks in Mansfield. Terrible acid reflux and still a very uncomfortable stomach.
8x30" uphill strides. Had to adjust the plan a bit as the track was locked up this morning.

6M progression run with Jake at Fish Creek Trail. 40:01 for the run with 2M splits of 14:42, 12:59, 12:16. I definitely appreciate Jake's company and encouragement this morning. I've been discouraged with my training lately, so a positive voice was nice. This week was slower than last, but I'm going to just be patient and keep working.
1x60" pedestal routine.
25' stationary bike with mini interval pyramid in the afternoon.
2x10 general strength.
Wednesday, June 29th
60' stationary bike with intervals + 20' elliptical.
25' natural run with Jake on Town Park Trail in the afternoon.
Thursday, June 30th
2M warm up + 800m of striding the straights, jogging the curves.
1x1600 (5:56), 3' rest, 2x800 w/ 60" rest between each (2:54,2:54), 60" rest, 4x400 w/ 30" rest between each (84,83,83,82), 60" rest, 4x200 w/ 30" rest (39,39,38,39). I wanted to start at 10k pace and cut down throughout the workout, so mission accomplished on that side. What worries me is how HARD it is for me to breathe right now. I was struggling to hit pace for the entire workout (very first lap was a 91). Just need to keep taking care of myself and be patient? Altogether, 6M running and 3.5 of it at race pace.

50' easy in the morning in Hull, TX. Threw in a few surges on the way back due to such a slow shuffle on the way out.
1M easy in the afternoon with Jake. Followed it up with drills + 4x100m strides.
Saturday, July 2nd
70' natural run on an amazing dirt path in Seabrook, TX. Another slow run going out, but got into a good rhythm on my way back. About 9 miles.
Weekly Mileage: 48 running + 11 x-training.
