Today I was supposed to run 5 miles; the first four at an easy, comfortable pace and the last mile at a faster pace. I had forgotten to read what I was supposed to do during those five miles and initially planned on running all of them at an easy pace. It wasn’t until about mile three that I realized that since yesterday was an off day I might have to run the last mile faster. I did run mile five faster, but not as fast as I usually run those last miles. The run felt great even though it was really hot outside. The entire run of 5.13 miles took 48:50 giving me an average pace of 9:30 which isn’t bad for my training runs. Now for the tough day tomorrow: speed day.
