Week 10 - Day 3: 8 miles

This was a nice run. We finally had some warmer weather; it was around 41 degrees. Michele and I took off from the rec center at 5:00 a.m. - ran up to Interstate Drive, down Hwy 55 all the way to Oak Dr. We took a left on Oak Dr. and ran back up to through town, down jail hill, back up to the park by the baseball fields, up the steps behind FNB, down jail hill again, onto the greenway and back to the parking lot of the rec center for 8 miles in 1:19:54. A nice, easy pace of 9:59/mile. Although it really felt to me like we were running faster that. I am just glad I felt good during the run. The week before last, when I ran intervals and then 2 - 7 milers in a row - it wore me down. Now I just have a 5 miler tommorrow and a 10 miler Friday. Then it's off to the mountains for some snow skiing!!!

I'm running the 5 at the rec center in the morning. Briar said he wants to join me so he'll probably run a mile or two of it with me, but he can usually hold a 10min/mile pace.
The 10 will have to be around 5 AM, and I would definitely prefer it be outside if at all possible. Maybe we could all three run this one together???

I can do 5am tomorrow at the Rec center. I will be on the track when you get there. Let's see what the weather is for Friday morning but I could do 5:30??? What exciting route do you want to do???
