Out to my usual route and then added a little when I got back to the house... I felt decent and stronger at the end which was nice but tired at the same time if that makes sense. My average pace was 9:01 with a total time of 1:58:18. I finished up with some lower body weights. A decent week mileage wise. I need to step it up though as the summer goes a long.

See you Monday

This run just Sucked! No other words to describe it... I just felt awful from the start and I'm not sure why... Most of my long runs this month have felt pretty good really. I guess I will just have to try and forget about this one. My average pace was so slow at 10:02 with a total time of 2:24:07, Rough...
