Ran in Gatesville. ..visiting my parents. Started out just running, then after a couple of miles I thought about my plan to run one slow then one fast mile. Here is the results.

1. 7:56. 154

2. 7:30. 150

3. 8:16. 148

4. 7:05. 153

5. 8:50. 150

6. 6:49. 158

7. 8:38. 147

8. 6:39. 157

9. 8:44. 152

10. 6:23. 163

.3 mile @ 9:00 pace Avg. 7:42 @ 153

It seemed to take a while to get the wheels going on the fast miles. The first one was 7:30 and seemed hard.

Started out with a plan to run 8 easy miles at 9:00 pace. After the first couple of miles I decided to speed up to a more comfortable easy pace.

Working on a different way to tape my toe. Don't let the photo fool you, without the tape it looks really gnarly.

Dang it! I forgot and left my watch at work again. Ran the same route as yesterday...probably a little faster today.
