I headed out to Gu Corner but turned around because of the damn wind! Once I got back to Salem it was a lot more calm so i just did some loops on canal road to finish up. Legs were super tired and beat up. Not sure if its from the wind or just not use to the mileage. My average pace was 8:55 with a total time of 1:59:07. 41 miles for the week which is the most I have had this year. I need to keep trending up through the summer.

See you Monday.
