01.09.2018 Nice outside for a change, 7 miler

I went outside this morning and said to myself, "Hey, it's nice out today."  Then I looked at the temp on my phone and it said 31 degrees.  F. I am starting to get used to cold weather and it's been so cold, that 30 doesn't feel bad.  

I got out in a mix of sun and clouds this morning for a nice, easy 7 miler at a pace of about 7:50ish.  I forget what my watch said at the end.  It felt easy, and I didn't want to push it too much with my 12 miler looming tomorrow.  For a fleeting moment in mile 7 today, I contemplated going the 12 miles today, but decided to wait until tomorrow.  I need some more pre run fluids before a 12 miler.

This week is shaping up to be pretty strong, as long as I stick to the plan.  Next week, I am going to throw in my first speed session in a long time.  I am not sure if it's going to be 400m, 800m, or mile repeats.  I will get back to you.

I was looking at my year in summary bar graph on Strava, the summer is pretty glaring.  A little embarrassing, but I will look forward, not back.  Here is the snapshot:
