I felt a sore throat coming on last night. Sure enough, my throat's much worse this morning. I think I'm catching the "Fort Campbell crud" my son brought home. Those army bases are worse than schools for spreading germs and illness.

I did run a decent set of mile repeats yesterday. 5:54, 5:53, and 5:52 compared to 6:07, 6:10, and 5:56 from the same workout two years ago. I wasn't very happy with the run until I looked in the old log and saw how slow the miles were a couple of years ago. I can't believe how close we're getting to the marathon. I only have three more hard workouts: just an 8 mile general aerobic run Saturday, 13 miles on Sunday, and an 8 mile run with 2 or 3 miles at marathon pace on Wednesday. Everything else is just a recovery run. I might even take a day off. My last zero-mileage day was over 100 days ago back in September when we drove up to Fort Campbell to see the soldiers return from Iraq.
