After laying off of running for a week due to various reasons, e.g. rest, family events, travel, etc., I finally hit the road again with my usual running buddies. We opted for 8.5 miles with little pick-ups spread throughout. Richard felt like we need to add more speed work to our training schedule and we were all happy to oblige;-) My alarm went off at 4:45 AM to leave myself some time for the first cup of coffee before leaving for the run. I met up with the guys at their office at 5:30 AM and we started off easy running just above 8 minute pace for the first two miles. After that, we added a couple of speedy miles at just above 7 minutes per mile. We ended up running from Research Park to Indian Creek Greenway to Target and back with an average pace of 9 minutes per mile. That included 3 miles at significantly faster pace followed by some slow jogging. My body felt a lot better than it has been with all the nagging injuries I have encountered lately. Hopefully, I am going to continue to feel better physically just as the temperatures are starting to dropp ever so slightly as well. I am ready for some cool weather running.
