More mid-summer running.

Another busy week.  Took in a comedy show Sunday night, ran Monday from work and did 3x1 mile intervals.  I did 6:33, 6:45, 6:44.  It felt hot toward the end, but good - especially for off-track in the heat.  Tuesday night - out late for a concert.  Wednesday I did a 3 mile tempo: 7:30, 7:28 and 7:26 - again in the heat.  Felt good - hot toward the end - but the pace wasn't anything too grueling.  Thursday I was down in CT for a work outing - and skipped out from 2-3:30 to do a 4 mile easy run around Rockyneck state park.  It was hot, and a bit nostalgic.  Kept me away from the booze and food for a bit.  Up to NH yesterday to get the kids - back down to CT this weekend for FF draft (more booze and food) - and a long run with some old friends on Sunday.  Those dudes can move though, I may have some trouble hanging on.  Next week is probably a Tue/Thr/Weekend week.

Mid Summer Running

Kind of a boring week.  Got back from AZ Sunday night and rested Monday.  Tuesday I did a slow 4.6 miles up and down the bike path before work.  Thursday I went from work and did slow 4.5 miles around the Charles.  Friday I ran again - it was really nice out - so I figured I'd run a little further since the weather was great: 6.1 miles.  So nothing great this week.  I took sat/sun off this weekend and will maybe go again from work tomorrow. - maybe 3x1 miles if I feel up to it.

AZ Morning Race

Early morning race in AZ.  I'm glad I made it out - great turnout of people - even at 5:30 to sign up!  I guess when it is so hot mid morning - it makes sense to get an early start.  I started fast, but really peeled back the last mile because of the heat - so my overall pace was pretty mediocre: 7:07 - but a fun race and not bad for mid-summer.  better things to come.

I took advantage of some drier weather Monday and did a 3 mile tempo at 7:20 from work.  4.4 total.  A great start to the week.  Yesterday morning I did the 30 up/down 'long run' - which netted me 7.2 miles.  I'll be in AZ this weekend - looking to get another 5 in.  Looking forward to the trip, but going to miss my home for the 4th weekend in 5 weeks!
