Flat Five

Ran 5.0 miles @ 7:35/mile pace.

The focus on recovery continues, as I ran five miles on a relatively flat loop after work. It's a perfect route for recovery runs, and a perfect fit after yesterday's run. My splits were pretty even (between 7:28-7:37 throughout), but I knew I was going a bit fast. As a result, it felt a bit laborious. I really need to focus more on slowing down for recovery runs.

I'm taking a scheduled rest day tomorrow. I'll likely do my Hills of Death route again on Thursday. Friday, I'm traveling to D.C. for a conference, and I should get in a few good runs down there. I've already google mapped the hotel we're staying out and designed a few routes.

You have a quick recovery pace! I envy that. I struggle during this time of the training cycle.

DC is a great place to run. If you get the chance, try to get out to Rock Creek Park (you should be able to take the Metro).
A belated congrats on MDI - that is one tough course that has chewed me up and spit me out more than once.
