Today, coming off yesterday's lack of running, I wanted to get in some good work. I decided, since I have a couple smaller breaks, I would do two separate runs. I ran the first 4 miler in a quick pace of 7:09/mile, total run time was about 28:37. It was a good, strong run with a little hill work in there.
My second run, on an overlapping route, but slightly different, went 29:27 total, for a pace of 7:21/mile. Another strong run pace. Both runs in general were great, considering they were back to back, with only about 1.5 hours in between. Also, with a temp of about 35, and windchill bringing it down to feeling like low 20's, I am happy with today's work.
I am coming up on a week off from work, home, hopefully busy with the wife, house, and kids. I am committing to 4 workouts this next week, running or cross training doesn't matter, but I want 4 workouts of at least 30 minutes. That is my goal.
