I had a nice easy morning run this morning.  The sky was clear and the sun coming up.  It was georgeous, especially compared to last nights run in the rain.

Wednesday night at the gym with the kids. Treadmill tempo run.

1 mile warm up

7 miles, 1% incline 9.1 mph. Mile 7 was tough so I started running 0.25 miles at a time. By mile 6.5 I really wanted to stop, so I increased the speed to 9.2. I then wanted to stop at 6.75 so I increased the speed to 9.3 for the last quarter mile....7 miles in 46:07 (AP 6:35)

1/2 mile cool down.

6 EZ miles this morning and another beautiful, crisp, cool morning. 

AP  8:12

I'm really starting to love my EZ days.  I used to dread them, but now I like them better than my hard days.

It was a very dark morning, so dark that I almost ran off the road a couple times.  It's a weird feeling when you can't see the road in front of you.

I started off a little sluggishly for the first few miles and then I seemed to settle into a nice groove.  I did my 10 mile loop with the 1st 3.5 miles climbing 700+ feet and then a nice easy descent over the next 6.5 miles.  I did it twice to get in my 20 miles.  The first loop I ran in 1:18:10.  I was suprised to see I had done it that fast in that I kind of felt like I was sleep walking through that first loop.  In my never ending quest for negative splits I picked it up a bit on the second loop and ran it in 1:14:54.

Total run 20 miles,  2:33:04,  AP 7:39

I was feeling good with a couple miles to go so I let the horses run and averaged 6:33 over the last 2 miles.  I hope I don't pay for that on Monday when I head out for my run.
