After a slow mile warmup on the treadmill I ran the Eagles View hill course with Paul for the 1st time in a very long time. I was pleased that it felt a bit easier than expecting going up the hills but I was pretty much spent the last 1/2 mile or so and couldn't quite keep up with Paul who finished very strong. Our GPS watches didn't want to agree on pace but I think we decided we ended up somewhere just over 38 minutes and something under 8 min/mile overall pace. I definitely get a better workout running with others rather than solo...thanks Paul.

Note: This was also 1st day breaking in some new Asic Gel 2120's, the shoes felt great.

Lakeview run with Paul, Nate and Cory. Plan was to follow Sasha's suggestion to do 3-5 mile run at 7:00 pace rather than the interval workout I have been doing. Since this was the first time doing this workout we decided to play it conservative and just go for 3 miles today. All-in-all I think we did pretty good, it was a little tough the 1st mile and 1/2 with the wind against us but once we turned around and got the breeze out our back we picked up the pace and were able to speed up each mile. I was certainly impressed with all the other runners who all had legitimate reasons not to do well on this run. According to my GPS paces for the fast miles were 7:02, 6:57, and 6:46 which I think averages to around 6:55.

Perhaps next week we can shoot for 3.25 or 3.5 miles

Longest run since SGM. I misjudged a bit and ended up going a little longer than intended. Had to go the last 5 miles by myself and pretty much felt totally out of gas the last 3 miles or so. I ran the first 10-12 miles around 8:00-8:45 pace and the last miles very slow (9-10). I should have probably ran the first 1/2 slower and saved more energy for the last 1/2 and maybe I could have picked it up toward the end. Felt pretty tired all day Saturday.
