My week in running:

Monday: 5 miles before work. Sunday was rest day, and I got plenty of rest! Relaxed majority of the day. Could of used a few more minutes sleep, but up before my alarm. Coffee, light work-out, stretch, and out the door by 6. Comfortable run, made a point to not over do it going through the hills or after.
Tuesday: 1 mi before work. Rest day, one for the streak. Run Streak day 1,011. Light workout and run around the neighborhood before work. Arrg!
Wednesday: 3.11 miles before work. Met a new lady friend after my run. :)
