Which Brings Us To...

Yesterday, August 22nd.

10 miles. In the heat. Midday.

Yeah, you KNOW that was a blast. I burned 1052 calories, and averaged 8:52/mile for the run.

It wasn't the smartest run I've ever gone on. I was planning on running trails, but got sidetracked in the morning with other obligations. So, around noon, I finally went on my run, from the house. I hadn't run that far on roads in quite a while, so when I hit the 7 mile mark, it shouldn't have come as a surprise that I was feeling it. Add to that, the 85 degree heat, and a somewhat stiff headwind on the way out, and I was destined for soreness last night. This morning? I'm actually feeling pretty good.

August 20th

4.88 miles with an average speed of 8:06/mile.

August 7th

4 miles, averaging 8:07/mile. Not far. Not fast, but getting better.

August 4th

5.24 with an average pace of 8:15/mile. Feeling better

Then There Was August 1st

Ah yes, August 1st I remember it well.

I guess I ran 7 miles in 1:05. It was Westridge Canyon, and if memory serves me, I think it probably kicked my ass.

July 27th was a while ago...

I ran 5.26 miles and averaged 8:19/mile.
