Met up with the gang at Twin Brooks and ran primarily with Jim and Blaine. Had a lot of fun talking about races and the Tour de France. Warm out, but not humid at all which was a nice change. Nice to come home and Kate had a big bowl of pasta waiting for me. Good stuff!

Ran 5.3 miles @ 8:59/mile pace.
Moderately hilly.
Lower 80s, sunny.
Adidas Adizero XT, shorts, short sleeved shirt, cap.

Good running with you the first two though Jamie! I have a thought though based on your recorded pace. I had 5.52 miles for 8:35 pace. Blaine had something similar. My watch is pretty accurate in road races - actually it is a little long so that my actual pace is about 2s/mile slower than my watch pace. So I'm assuming that you're watch is more off than mine. If so, you are recording a much slower pace than you are actually running, which means your "easy" runs (by the watch) are faster than you think and your workouts (not on the track) are faster still. Just a thought.

I suspected my Garmin was significantly short on trails, so good to have the data to back it up. The gap seems to widen as the trail runs get longer. Still, I guess it's good think I'm running longer and slower than I actually am. Would rather have it this way than the other way around but I'll tool with the settings and see if I can correct anything.
