I felt pretty good about this morning's run considering I'm a little over marathon weight right now at 180. Plus, I'm nowhere near top endurance shape. But it felt great to get out there and push it, to at least get a snapshot of my current baseline. I ran 10 miles total, with the middle 5 at an average pace of 6:27. Here are the splits ...
8:30 7:44 7:32 6:46 6:31 6:27 6:17 6:15 7:35 7:53
Later in the summer, hopefully I'll view this as a short, light workout ... but for now it kinda kicked my butt a little. But it wasn't too unmanageable. Today's Summer Workout Index was 155 ... not unbearable, but starting to feel it. Pretty good morning!
... be great today!
