Was shooting for 5 to 5.5 miles today, took some different turns and ended up going 5.6 according to mapmyrun. My splits got messed up because of some of the new places I ran, but my total was 40:00 on the nose, which for 5.6 miles averages to 7:09 pace. Overall, felt really good and this run felt easy. 60 degrees and sunny helped as well!!

Todays run was terrible. I fell asleep right before I ran on accident, and woke up in a hurry to run. My legs were so stiff, I just had nothing. Throw in major GI issues on top of that and my 7 turned into barely over 5 at 7:46 pace according to my final total time. This day was bad.

2 mile warmup, 2 mile cooldown. In between threw in 5xmile repeats. Goal was to stay within 5:45-6:00. Took 2:30-3:00 breaks between each. Took a toll out of me, but i nailed the pace and had a great workout.

1- 5:55.1

2- 5:52.6

3- 5:46.8

4- 5:45.5

5- 5:39.5

Overall, felt pretty good. I am very happy that my splits got progressively faster with each repeat. Makes me feel like I got better as the workout progressed. Today was the last really hard workout before my 10 mile race next weekend. I will get one more speed day in but it will probably be lighter.

Started losing it towards the end of the run. I dont think those miles are even either because my time fluctuated quite a bit at the end.
