Jefferson High School Loop - 6.26 miles, averaged 7:35 

 

 Regular run turned tempo. 1 mile warm up, 4 miles at 6:56/57 pace with 1.26 mile cool down.  Was hoping for 5 miles, but I got a side stitch toward the end of tempo mile 4 (too bad too because all the miles could have been sub-7).  I think I have built a pretty good base, considering my threshold it slowly creeping down the 7 minute range.

Split 1: 6:52; Split 2: 6:54; Split 3: 6:59; Split 4: 7:01

Tried a new trail I found the other day. The town website says it's two miles, but it seems to end around the 1 mile mark, so it was a short one today with a bit of neighborhood wandering - 4 miles, averaged 8:31
