Tried to pick up the pace a little this morning and run a 8 mile progressive run. Then 3 miles with Callie. She is getting stronger and making those extra miles a little harder for me. :-) It was cool running with a full moon this morning!

4 Mile progressive tempo run then 3 with Callie.

Comparing this run with several simmilar 4 mile tempo runs 13 weeks out from a marathon shows that I may be little behind in my conditioning...or I may be a little bit ahead in my conditining...? The previous times were when the temperatures were 37 and 40. Today it was 76-78. The HR effort is about the same but the time is about 20 seconds slower.

Also, Callie is beginning to pick up the pace. She ran about a minute per mile faster today than about a month ago on the same run.
