Pikes Peak Greenway

15 miles 1:42:41 6:50 average per mile
10:00 am) low 30's sunny
Good long run today. I felt strong till mile 11. Fatigue set in and I
struggled a little bit miles 11-14. Finished with a solid 6:19 last mile.
Fitness is coming around. Still not running high volume weeks but
the workouts have been quality. Hamstring is much better.
Got a roll recovery for Christmas. Have not really used it yet. I hope
to start using it more. Its just another tool to have in recovery. I already
use the foam roller and the stick on a regular basis.
2015 race schedule is firming up. 4 marathons and a 50 mile ultra in June.
March - Albany, Georgia
April - Albuquerque, New Mexico (Half)
May - Green Bay, Wisconsin
June - Sheridan, Wyoming 50 miler

43.25 miles for the week.
