Small Sunday Group Run
I got in my last real run before Boston, 11 miles at marathon pace (hopefully). 7:25 seemed pretty easy, so with good nutrition and sleep this week, we'll see how things go. I did the early route for the first 5 1/2, then met with Ann and Erin, who decided to run up to the dump and back (12 miles). Most everyone else was at the Great Bay 1/2. I did the first mile with them, then picked up the pace a bit for a couple more before turning around. The way back flew, with 2 of the 3 miles under 7. A little faster than I probably should have run, but it felt good, the wind was at my back, a beautiful day and a slight downhill. How could you ask for more. Right now they are calling for a high temp of 57 on the 19th, so I think it should be a good day. This weeks track workout will be short, 6 X400 at 1:25 or so, then a couple of 3-5 milers at marathon pace. Rest the legs and focus the mind.
