Monday, August 23rd

average pace/ total time- 6:51/ 41:04.
pace progession- 7:14, 7:07, 7:07, 6:43, 6:36, 6:12.
comments- Good run, but not as fast as we were intending for it to be. Not sure if it was because of the hills, or if we just didn't push things as much as we should have. Definitely felt like I was working during the entire run though. The only parts that started to feel less uncomfortable were the 5th and 6th miles, probably because they are pure downhill.

*25' stationary bike.

*5 miles.
where- Boy Scout Camp.
average pace/ total time- 8:35/ 42:55.
comments- If today needed to be a good recovery day, it served it's purpose! :) The entire team ran together today, so it was extremely slow for the first half (as in 9:30 pace!) and then, thankfully, we picked it up some during the second half. But it was a nice location and my body felt strong and relaxed.
