Usual Saturday Route. I felt okay but not real strong. Pace was pretty steady for the most part and i felt like I could have kept going even though I was feeling pretty tired at the same time. My average pace was 9:01 with a total time of 2:07:14, it was a 40 plus mile week for me so I am pretty proud of that.

See you Monday.

Struggled again on this one. My Long runs have been very difficult and not very fun... I can't seem to build on anything. Every week is just a death March... Oh well. I'm proud of myself for sticking to it and not giving up. My average pace was 9:29 with a total time of 2:23:35. Brutal...
