03/01/2017 Soggy 6 miler with hills

The weather is going to run the gamut this week it seems.  Monday and Tuesday were low 50's and sunny, mild.  Today, the temps are in the 60's, but it is basically pouring out.  Tomorrow and Friday, the temps will fall constantly and bottom out in the low 30's on Friday with a chance of some light snow.  Jesus, global warming freak out at it's finest this week?  

At least, so far, I have gotten in some good work.  Including the 6 miler I just finished up, I am at 20 miles for the week.  I should be at 25-30 by Friday, plus a body weight workout.

Today's run, I just went out and ran 6 miles for a comfortable run with a couple strong hills in the middle.  I ran about 8:09/mile pace, finishing up a few ticks under 49 minutes.  With two climbs of between .6 and .9 miles in the middle, I am satisfied with that work.

Tomorrow, I am toying with whether or not to run a Fartlek 5 miler or get in a couple mile repeats or 400 meter repeats.  I will get back to you.
