8.0 with no garmin. Ran out towards my old church and towards the freeway and back. Decided not to run with my garmin. Had a deer jump out about 10 feet in front of me at one point during the run. Legs a little sore from Saturday's run.

8.82 in 1:06:41. 

I decided to try and do the same workout that MichelleL and TylerS did yesterday (but without the 200m intervals at the end).  It was 4 x 2000m (1.25 miles) at around an overall pace of 6:05 to 6:20 or somewhere in that range for all 4.  Warmed up for 1.75 and then here were the splits:

1-7:30 (6:01 pace) Why am I doing this?  Maybe I should just do mile repeats......

2-7:41 (6:09 pace)

3-7:40 (6:09 pace) The best one by far. Felt relaxed and controlled.

4-Around 7:50ish

The last one was all screwed up because there was so much traffic.  This was a hard workout, but I actually came away from it feeling very good about things.  I probably went out too hard on the first 2 splits.  They were very uncomfortable.  However, the 3rd one felt really good and in controll.  It also had a slight (very slight) downhill to it.  Which also means that split 2 had a very slight uphill to it.

6.08 in 50:46. Avg pace 8:21.  Slow recovery run.  My body feels like it ran a race as a result of yesterday's workout.

2.40 on the TM in the evening after lifting for about 45 minutes.

6.0 in 47:14. Avg 7:51. Body still hurts a bit from Wednesday's run, but it must be feeling a little better because I was surprised to see the avg. pace of today's run at 7:51.  Hopefully the weather will hold out tomorrow and I can get a good run in outside.

17.0 in 2:19:37. Avg pace 8:13. Crappy run. Got no sleep and didn't eat much yesterday.....and what I did eat was garbage.  I did this same run last week in about 6 minutes faster.  Legs were hurting and it was just overall rough.  Glad it's done.

Lifted for about an hour.
