Unusually wet weather has forced me off the trails and onto the roads the last two runs. Tuesday I ran 5.7 miles on the roads, and averaged 8:05 per mile. Yesterday I ran 4.4 miles, including a 1.6 mile tempo run in the middle. 1st mile was 8:19, then next 1.6 miles were at "tempo" pace, 6:47/mile average, and the final 1.6 miles was 8:10/mile. Overall, not a bad workout. 16 miles for the week so far, and hoping to get into the upper 20s by week's end. I am also hoping to do a bonafide speed workout on the track this weekend, if the weather cooperates.
