Clippin' Away

Decided to run on Avon Lake's track tonight instead of Rocky River's. I'm happy I have the option of running on such great local tracks. Today's workout was another tempo run.. 2 miles easy, 3 miles at 6:10 pace, 1 mile easy.

Mile 1 - 7:32
Mile 2 - 7:38
Mile 3 - 6:13
Mile 4 - 6:10

Mile 5 - 6:07
Mile 6 - 8:21

Felt pretty wiped out after mile 4 so I took a quick water break before mile 5. It's been so damn humid out lately and I sweat like a pig. So much for my body's natural cooling mechanism! I'm going away to Syracuse this weekend and am going to attempt to get in my 18-miler before we hit the road at 9AM on Saturday morning.

I also am out of town in Maine for the weekend and hope to run my 18 miler in Acadia National Park. I'll let you know how it goes. Have a great weekend.

I ran mine on the treadmill early in the morning before we drove up to maine. My 3 mile average was at a 5:52 pace. I pushed it a little harder because I knew the treadmill would be easier than on the track.
6:10 on the track is pretty good. That's about what I would have done it in. Good job!
