Easy/recovery run on tap. Plan was to join Kate for the first mile on the trails before cutting across and going on to the roads for the rest of my run. However, her knees were bugging her so she turned around after about half a mile.
I continued on and it went well. Legs felt a tad creaky at first but loosened up as the run went on. With about a mile left, an old timey car drove past and I waved to the driver. He waved back and honked the horn which went "Ah-Woo-Ga!". That made me smile.
Pretty good week. Happy to get in 61.2 miles. Would liked to have gotten some more speed work in, but I guess two progression runs that were over 15 miles each that ended at or below MP for the last chunks has its benefits.
Worth noting drier air has finally moved in. Ahhhh. Deer fly season should start to wind down in another few weeks, making the trails a more viable option again.
Ran 9.2 miles @ 8:17/mile pace.
Mid to upper 60s, sunny.
