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.

Tempo-ing

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!
