I finished up the afternoon with another 5 mile run. This one I did inside my gym, on a small loop. It kind of sucks, but not as much as the weather. As a frame of reference, 30 laps around equals one mile. Yes, it is that small. I finished in exactly 40 minutes.
I started slow during the second run, but decided to kick it up so I would finish sooner. Each mile was faster, and the last mile was around 7:40ish I think. On a small loop like I was running, that pace feels like an all out sprint with lots of turns. By the end, I was tired, sweating a lot, and happy to be done.
Even with a low total on Monday because of the race and a zero due to the weather on Thursday, I am satisfied with the week. Next week is key to getting back to bigger miles. It is supposed to warm up to normal temps and I need to stretch out the long run and the total miles again.
