04/20/2016 5 miler with some speed

Coming off the 10 miles on the hills and pavement from yesterday, I decided to keep it flat and softer.  I ran on grass and stayed relatively flat.  My 5 miles were at a comfortable pace of around 8:20/mile, until the end.  I decided to push the final half mile to see what I could do on the leg and after running 4.5 miles already.  I was pleasantly surprised to finish and see that my split for the end half mile was 3:08, good for a 6:16/mile pace.  The speed didn't kill my leg and it being in the 21st mile of my short week so far, I will take it.  

I am trying to build a strong week again, but seriously considering a day off tomorrow.  It's not because I am hurt or anything, but I am trying to objectively be smart about my training.  I think I need to be extra cautious with the leg issues I am carrying right now.  Stay tuned.
