9 miles to the east of town with no real course in mind.  Just kind of ran all over and made turns at intersections in a random fashion.  It made the run feel even longer (not a good thing)...

I crossed the river and ran some laps on the trail @ All-Sports Park, then ran ~4 miles on the course of the GP Half Marathon.  Mixed in a little speed work when I was chased by a pit-bull on my way back to the park.  That's too bad because I'd really like to run the course a few times in the next couple weeks but I'm not a big fan of being chased by dogs that want to eat me.

11 miles this morning while running to the north freeway exit, then wandering various streets on my return.  I stopped to use the bathroom at McDonalds.  I guy was drinking a cup of soda from Carls Jr.  Strange things you see at 6am...

AM: 6 miles around GP.  Struggling to get up in the mornings...

PM: 14 miles in Coos Bay and North Bend.  Ran north past the casino, looped around North Bend, west towards the airport and church, then back to Walmart and into downtown via Prefontaine race course.  Ordered dinner at City Subs and ran another mile while I waited for my food, then back to the hotel for the night.

I ran west of town and stayed pretty flat for most of the run.  Hit 8 miles and then stretched for a bit, then began a series of 2 mile repeats.  First 2 miles in 5:53, 5:30 followed by 1/2 mile jog.  Second set in 5:33 and 5:29 as I ran along Redwood Rd and into downtown across the river.  Jogged 1/2 mile, then final 2 mile push past the skate park and home to Walgreens in 5:19 and 5:19.  Felt pretty good throughout but the last mile was tough.  Not bad though, given it's my first 'workout' since TOU.

Grants Pass Half in 3 weeks.  Hope to hit a PR.
