It's been a pretty easy uneventful week of running. It is very welcome.This is the 1st week, that I have been feeling it in the legs and joints. I guess the mileage and running 5 time a week, since early July has caught up to me a bit.
Once I get started running, I feel good, but getting up in the morning has been tough.
Guess this is part of the price you pay, to run a marathon.
Tuesday I ran a 5 mile run. Nothing special, I took the wife's van to the local tire shop, to get an oil change, give it the once over, and I put my 5 miles from there.
I ran a relaxing pace, 5.03 miles, 43:05mins.
Today, Thursday, I ran 6 miles in Veteran's Park. I wanted to get the run in before the Phils game, which started at 6:00pm (thanks MLB & TBS.. all about the $$).
Again, it was a pretty uneventful run, no weaves falling off girl's heads, or cops chasing me up a hill. No cross country meet. No deer in the woods, or wild turkeys running wild.
It was nice to run in very cool comfortable weather. There was a steady wind, but very manageable.
I ran 6.01 miles, 53:35mins.
fastest mile of the week: Tuesday, mile#5 8:09
slowest mile of the week: Thursday, mile#3 9:15
Saturday, I have a 4 miler on tap, and Sunday is the big one, 21miles!
