    Easy Run 5 mi 00:48 09:30 pace

    I wanted to do this run yesterday but had too many aches and pains. I tried to keep the pace somewhere between comfortable and very comfortable. The last mile was tough but I managed to gut it out... read more

    good Time crunched run 4 mi 00:34 08:33 pace

    I only had about 30 minutes tonight fit this in before my son's swim meet, but I did manage to knock off a few miles on the TM. Not too hard on the pace. I felt pretty good throughout.

    I hopped off the treadmill and went for a quick, easy, spin with a new neighbor that likes to ride (yay!). Just kept a social pace. Several rollers on the course. Nice way to cap off the night.
