Eagle view run with Nate. Ran out of gas today, thought it might happen since we had a pretty good workout for the 20-miler on Saturday. Nate was looking closer to his usual self and left me in the dust. At least I was able to keep ave. pace under 8:00 (7:58) so this made me feel OK about the run.

Had conflict during normal lunch hour so I ran Lakeview course earlier in the day. Felt OK, legs still a bit heavy probably from Saturday's 20-miler up/down Provo canyon. 

Wanted to see how consecutive 7:00 tempo miles felt on roads after not doing this workout for a while (besides on treadmill). After 1.5 mile warmup sped up to 7:00 pace. Felt pretty good until about 2.5 miles. Kept the pace until 3.25 miles, average pace 6:58.

 I do believe the treadmill workouts I've done recently to simulate this workout are actually easier than on the roads. But at least I can now officially say I'm at least at the level I was at before I had my March slump. Probably won't do this workout again until sometime after Boston Marathon, or perhaps next week I'll do it but only do a couple miles at tempo pace.

Scout campout this weeked so I went on a semi-long run today. Felt good, weather was great, so I decided to run toward the faster range of what I consider my flat marathon pace. Not paying too much attention to the GPS it seemed like 7:45 pace is what my body felt comfortable with today so I pretty much stuck to that pace for most of the run. I ran a bit slower during a middle mile with a little wind in my face and lack of focus, but then picked it up the last mile to finish with overall average pace of 7:45. Very happy to not be feeling any aches and pains that have any kind of injury feel about them. Looking forward to Boston a week from Monday.
