Fitness Run

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 32:58
Pace: 8:14 min/mi

Comments: As unpleasant as the weather was yesterday, it would be pretty hard to beat today's. I decided to do the run in the afternoon and that turned out to be the right call. Temperature was ideal, the sun was still out and I cranked out a great pace.

Of course my Garmin screwed up so I didn't get the time precisely right. The two full miles it did record were spot on 8 minute pace. So I feel pretty comfortable with the fix I manually entered.

This is the last "workout" before the half-marathon. I'll probably put a few easy miles in on Friday but the next real run is gonna be the 13.1.

Fitness Run

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 35:47
Pace: 8:56

Comments: Typically, I would have gone out for a run the day after a race but I decided to alternate all my days off this week due to the upcoming half marathon. My legs were a little more sore the day after the 5K than I expected but I think that had more to do with the hills than the speed.

This was a pretty good little effort. Started slow(ish) hit my regular pace for the second two miles and put a little mustard on the final lap. Focused a bit on form for the hills since it was rusty last Saturday and I know I'll need it next Saturday.
