Tour of the Hills

I ran with a fellow teacher, Tom, today, who set a new PR distance for himself. We had originally planned on 7.1 miles, but when we were about three and a half miles into the run, I asked him if he thought he could run the 10.7 mile version of the route by Thanksgiving. He instantly said he wanted to do it now. Cool. He did great, and I ran at his pace with him throughout. Lots of killer hills on this course and he was definitely very stoked afterwards, which he should be.

Recovery continues to go well and everything is on track. Not going to rush anything, as there is no need to do so. However, I am looking forward to building up that base again. More miles = more fun.

Ran 10.7 miles @ 9:51/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 134/166
Paved roads.
Extremely hilly.
Lower 70s, very windy.
