Ran on a mix of paved roads, dirt roads and trails this morning, taking advantage of the cooler air. Went well. Easy pace but even still the rust feels like it's continuing to fall off. Very happy about that.
As the mileage ramps up, I'll also gradually widen the gap between the hard and easy workouts, minimizing the moderate stuff. I anticipate being back in somewhat decent race shape by the end of the month. Yes, my wedding and preparations could complicate the training, and of course that takes precedence, but I should be able to work around everything.
Ran 5.1 miles @ 8:42/mile pace.
