Out to the Riverbottoms and back, same route as last week but a little less mileage. 30 Miles for the week is a mile stone for me. I haven't done that since last summer. My average pace was 8:58 with a total time of 1:39:53. I crashed a little but thats to be expected with the higher than normal mileage.

See you Monday.

Usual Saturday route. Mentally struggled on this one a bit... Not sure why. Getting use to these double digit runs again may be it. My average pace was 8:49 with a total time of 1:29:21, I need to get more consistent during the week.

See you Monday.

Usual Saturday route down into the riverbottoms and then back home. I felt tired on this one but that was to be expected with the increase in Mileage this week, 40 plus, I haven't done that since lasy year. My average pace was 9:03 with a total time of 1:59:32, Slower than I would like but its all relative.

See you Monday.
