Start of week #4, according to Josh, this will be an easy week.
Plan for today was 4 easy miles at 9:35 pace (+/- 10secs)
Temp today was gorgeous. A tad chilly running around the pond, but temp said 57F at the start & 59F at the end. I didn`t even break a sweat during todays run.
Legs/knees felt awesome. Really working hard to keep the pace slow.
4 Miles in 38:40 (avg pace of 9:35)
Mile splits according to my Garmin301:
M2 - 9:45
M3 - 9:38
M4 - 9:36
During M2 I met up with a buddy of mine, and the pace slowed a tad, but still within my mark, so ok. We ran for a mile and then he went on his way:)
Followed the run immediately with the assigned core workout. Fun stuff:)!! And then had my EAS carb control energy drink for recovery.

Very happy with my core workout today. I did a ton more today than I did last week. Still can`t do the obliques, but I know in time I will do them:)!! Only could do 12 Hip Lifts, and 10 Knee Crunches, but that`s 12 and 10 more than I could do last week:)!! Pushups were hard. Did 25 for the first set, and boy did they burn, but I did it. Could only do 10 for the 2nd set, but still good. Good burn. Good improvement from last week. Feeling stronger already:)!!
