North Salisbury 3 x 1 mile repeats w/ 4 minute recovery - 7.25 miles total, averaged 8:00

 

Split 1 (6:33)

Split 2 (6:38)

Split 3 (6:44)

 

Headwind and uphill on the last repeat. Tried to change directions but I ran into a biker, so I had to run on the side of the grassy ditch. Repeats got slower, but this was the first time I have done mile repeats and I still managed to get them 10-11 seconds a part (reverse order would have been better). Planned for 6:38, 6:35, 6:32, but we'll see what happens next week.

18th to Veteran's Memorial Parkway to 9th and back, few smaller loops to make up the miles - 14 miles, averaged 8:13

 

7 miles easy, 3 miles at MP, 3 miles at HMP, 1 more at MP; half marathon split was 1:47:42 I think. About 3-5 minutes faster than any training runs at that distance last year.
