02.12.2018 Quick 7 miler in the wind

Coming off the race the other day, I wanted to get out and start the week well with a strong run.  I got out for 7 miles and kept the pace pretty quick.  After my first mile, warming up a bit, I averaged no worse than 7:26/mile.  Overall, my pace was 7:27/mile.

If you take out the first mile warm up, my pace for the 6 miles to finish was 7:22/mile.  That isn't a huge difference, but seeing a good stretch of miles at a solid pace of 7:22 shows the continued fitness.  

This week will continue strong hopefully, building toward a 40+ mile week.  I have only 30+ days until the half marathon.  If you take out the final week for a taper, it leaves just a couple weeks for building in some miles and some speed work.  The rest of the week, will include a long run, a speed session of hill repeats, and a couple regular runs.
