Nice and cool out this morning and it looked like it was going to rain when I got to the trailhead. I thought that I have my rain jacket in the trunk of the car but it was not there so I could only hope that it didn't start raining as it was rather cool out with a good breeze. The plan for today was 6 mile warmup then 3 x 3 miles at MP (6:50) with 1 mile recoveries and 1 mile cool down. Ended up doing the the 3's with the first at 6:37 avg, second at 6:34 avg, and third at 6:31 avg with a total avg at 6:34 which was more HMP. The first set felt easy. The second felt harder which was against the wind and I spotted @Sarah G. on this one. Sorry Sarah as I would have ran with you for a bit but I was on a mission. The third one hurt as it was against the wind. Overall a tough session but not overly brutal. I really should not have run these as hard as I did. When I break MP based runs into segments I tend to run them to hard and to fast. Need to work on that. This would have been much easier if I stuck to MP. Overall things feel pretty good. Right hip flexor is a little tender but didn't bother me at all on the faster sections. I will stretch it out really good over the next few days. Running with a friend tomorrow which will keep the paces in check and will be a nice easy day for me.
