This is the first 20 mile run in months...maybe since January. I was very concerned that it might be a run-fail but the further I ran the more conficent I became. I pushed the last three miles and pushed to above 90% effort at the end. The weather cooporated and gave me a chance to run without overheating. This ranks 4th of all my (20) 20 mile runs I have done with an avg of 80% effort overall. 

Nice progression on each 5 mile Avg going from 7:52 - 7:47 - 7:33 - 7:19 pace.

I needed this run!

A real mix of running today. I ran with Polina for 2 miles in the middle of the run.

I feel like I should be a little faster on these 1.5 mile runs. Basiclly I ran an avg of 6:23 which is the same as 5K pace. I should be able to run at least a 6:10 at this distance. Legs are not the problem it's still the cardio.

James 1:19-20

My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,  for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.

I felt like this was a very good run and felt strong throughout. I need to go back and do some comparisons from previous runs. I liked my last three miles! ...And overall heartrate was nice and low.

I ran some slow miles and two fast miles.

ACTUALLY THE TWO FASTEST MILES I HAVE EVER LOGGED! :-)

5:48 & 5:39...I picked out the flatest part of my 7 mile route to run these miles.
