A nice 8 miles this afternoon. Pretty good weather, a little on the colder side, but it felt nice. Took me a while to get loose cuz i had just woken up from a nap before the run. I finished pretty strong though so that is always nice. Splits:

1- 7:30.5

2- 8:01.1 (uphill) 15:31, 7:45 pace

3- 7:22.9

4- 7:24.6 (30:19, 7:35 pace)

5- 7:25.4

6- 7:05.8 (44:50, 7:28 pace)

7- 7:19.1

8- 6:52.8

TOTAL-- 59:02 (7:23 pace)

Overall, a good run, negative split with a decent last mile. Felt pretty good once I got in the groove after the first few miles.

Broke out the flats for a 4 mile tempo today. Wanted to stay around 6:10s, but was way faster than that. I was just running easy and my splits were just fast, so thats always a good sign. Splits:

1- 5:45.6 

2- 6:01.6 (11:47)

3- 6:05.8 (17:53)

4- 5:56.3

Total--23:49, 5:57 pace

Overall, I am really happy with that. Its sad, but todays workout was not far off my last weekend 5k splits. I dunno, maybe Im turning into a longer distance runner. I feel better the longer I go and I even started running faster that 4th mile today. It was especially crazy how easy the first mile felt, i had to consciously slow up otherwise I'd of easily hit 5:30.

Another living history farms off-road race today. I ran it last year and it was a blast. Completely off-roading, through corn fields, up monster hills/mud cliffs. 9 creek crossings. Ran it in my spikes which i found at home. Last year was freezing cold which made it challenging. this year the weather was a little better(mid 30s with fog), the water crossings were still cold and the race was just as challening. I finished looking like a mud monster--I couldnt get up out of one of the creeks and just got covered in mud in the process--priceless! I think the distance changes on this thing every year. Last year I ran it in 46 minutes and something and this year it was 50 minutes. O well, i dont really do it for time, just to have a fun off road experience. Its such a hard race! Truly takes it outta ya. Its neat though because 7000 people run each year, so to get 182 out of 7000 is pretty cool. Nonetheless, I had a blast this year and will try to come back next year for sure. They say the race is over 7 miles, but i have no idea how much past it, so i just ballparked it and said I ran 9 total with the mile warmup and brief cooldown. They always mess with the mile markers too, one mile (like number 4) i ran in 5:10 haha (definitely wasnt a 5:10, i wasnt running that hard), and then mile 5 was 11:10 (definitely not that slow), i dont think they even know haha, just place random mile markers. It was a pure guts running day today!
