Today, the sun is out, it is hot, and I love it. There is just something about summer weather that makes me happy. I think it has something to do with not being cold. Anyway, coming off of yesterday's race, I just wanted to get in some miles and keep it simple. I headed out for a 7 miler at a decent clip and ended up running about 8:06/mile pace for the duration. It is worth noting, that during mile 6 there was a big climb and I died during it. I think it was partly the heat and partly being tired from yesterday. Overall, the run went well though.
I did start to think that maybe I should dial down the miles and dial up the speed work and intensity stuff even more these next few weeks. I am going to consult with a couple resources and a couple people to decide the best course of action.
