    DH, is your physical test this weekend?

     

    Rich, the 5k sounds like it would be fun.  I'm looking at a 5k for next weekend - wife is going to do the 1/2...

     

    6 miles today, first 3 in 26:48 (8:56/mi),  4 - 8:26, 5 - 8:41 and 6 - 8:10.  Temps ~74F (25 degrees cooler - no wonder I felt so much better)

    I'm a day late posting here, but so what? lol

     

    2 miles on the railtrail, splits were 10:57 and 9:51.  I picked the pace up a bit in the 2nd mile to see how my legs would feel and they're still not 100%, but probably close enough to get me through a 5K.

     

    Dark Horse, I like your chances in next week's test, do you have a time goal you're shooting for?

     

    Nice run Ray, the leaves are falling here in NH and our temp is about to cool by 25 degrees as well.  Then another 25 and another 25..... sigh.  The coldest I've run in is 7 below with a wind.  

     

    Getting ready to head for the 5K shortly, I feel pretty good this morning.





    Enjoy life, this ain't a rehearsal...
