Five straight days of good runs and I'm getting tired. Today I cut it back to a goal of 7:00 miles for as long as I could go. The shins were hurting some and at the start I just wasn't sure it was worth it. Two miles in and I was feeling pretty good so I sped up to 6:35 a mile for one mile, got tired, decided an injury wasn't worth it, and backed off to 7:03 a mile.
After four miles I shut it down. A good week is a good week. Not to much. The pace was 6:50 a mile. I'll take it.
The week's summary is 34 miles spread over five days, with a total average pace of 7:08 a mile. By almost any measure a great week.
