Five in Perfect Autumn Weather

Ran the warm up and cool down with the cross country team, extending a mile on to the warm up. One thing I've been noticing in the past week or so is that the quicker paces have been coming easier. Most runs I look at the data and I've been pleasantly surprised by the pace. Sweet. Obviously a good sign.

The cross country season will be winding down soon, with regionals this weekend and states the following. I'll be looking to kick things up a few notches as a result, as it'll be easier to focus on my own running and I'll have more time to do so.

While I've been enjoying the Zen aspects of running the past several weeks, my attention is starting to drift towards races. I just need some goals. I'm looking at the Massanutten 100 this May. Before then, I might do the Hyannis Marathon... but Massanutten is a higher priority.

Ran 3.0 miles @ 7:15/mile pace. AHR/MHR - 155/167
Ran 2.1 miles @ 7:37/mile pace. AHR/MHR - 155/167
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Upper 50s, sunny.
Asics GT-2140, Shorts, short sleeved shirt.
