Faster Easy Day

Planned day off for running on Thursday.  Just went to the gym to lift.

Today I did my running double w/ 4 easy miles in the morning followed by 5 miles in the afternoon, however due to a late start and up against dinner plans w/ the family, I needed to get that afternoon (actually evening) run in quickly. 

Started out a bit quicker than usual (7:05 pace) and kept upping the pace as I went.  Nothing too fast, and the effort level and HR showed that it wasn't a tough effort by any stretch.  The final tally was 5-miles @ 6:48 pace in the trails w/ an average HR of 154 or just 82% of max HR.  

Gym workout and easy 6-miles tomorrow, getting ready for the 13-miler on Sunday.


9/11:  No running - Weightlifting (Upper-B and abs) leg lifting, stretching, rolling.

9/12:  AM:  4-miles @ 7:40
           PM:   5-miles @ 6:48, HR - 154
