Perfect weather this morning, and I felt great! I took advantage of Teren's day off to run longer. Midmorning mid-long. I'm trying to frontload the week a bit so I don't fall too behind in mileage. We are going to Yellowstone later this week, and I don't think running will be optimal.
I ran out 1300 W to Garder Village and back on the river trail. I planned on 10 but felt great so extended. I didn't do anything specifically paced, but I basically ran a progressive tempo. It looked like this.
7:50, 7:30, 7:15, 7:18, 6:59, 6:49. 6:58 (this is where I decided to see what I could do.) 6:49, 6:38, 6:26, 6:00, 6:30 (uphill), 6:04 and 1.1 cooldown. I didn't catch the split. I'm excited to drop low sixes at the end of longer efforts. It wasn't an organized workout, but I feel like I got some good benefit from today.
PM: 4.5 easy. Long day. 7:24 average
