AM: Ran Loafer again. Legs seem to be getting their zip back as I thought I was running about equal effort to last week but my splits were quite a bit faster and easily the quickest ever for me up Loafer. Tacked on a little extra at the end shooting for 8 miles but I misjudged and ended up with 8.2.
Uphill splits: 8:24, 8:50, 8:56, 6:17 (.65 miles, 9:41 pace)
Downhill/flat splits: 5:54, 7:00, 6:57, 7:17, 4:23 (.54 miles, 8:04 pace)
Overall average pace: 7:49.
PM: Ran with Paul and Nate 5.2 miles easy out LakeView direction. Had an enjoyable run, not quite as hot as last week and maybe we're getting a bit more used to the heat. Legs feeling pretty good after Loafer this morning.
Ave pace: 8:15.
This will be a reduced mileage / recover week for me, probably around 50 miles. Most of the reduction will come at the end of the week and will probably include a 5K race/time-trial on Saturday.
