Not much to write home about. Workouts during marathon season are about strength/volume, not speed. My legs are too dead from mileage to go much faster anyway.

I get to work this morning, pack my gym bag, and go to the gym only to discover that the gym is closed this week. I hate college gyms. Well I had to shower in the sink and did not get to foam roll or do core.
