Pm: 17 miles, averaged 7:14. HRM battery died.

5 up, 10-mile tempo, 2 down

10-mile tempo in 63:10 (6:19 average), which might be my second or perhaps third fastest 10-mile tempo. I think my PR is 1:02:low or 6:13 pace from last fall.

The last mile or so I was wheezing/rasping a good deal and finished around end of half marathon effort. I checked my overall tempo average pace briefly at 5 miles, 8 miles, and 1 mile to go. Otherwise totally by effort.

AM: 10 miles progression. Moderate down to LT, averaged 6:53. HR 157.

Last 4 miles at a decent pace: 6:36, 6:31, 6:23, 5:51

Good run. Got out at a decent hour before work and 55 degrees felt very refreshing. Not too many people at the park. Mostly me, the swans, and the deer.

AM/Lunch: 5.7 miles stressed and time crunched, averaged 6:44. HR 177.

Slept in a bit and just didn't think I had any time for a run, which made me mad. So instead of enjoying the hour or so I had, I ran like an idiot and finished 38 minutes and that was about it. I used to run hot like this once in a while when I started running. It taught me a lot about effort and taking easy runs pretty easy.
