Distance: 6.0 miles

Time: 56:47

Stretch: Barely

 

 

 

 

Weekly mileage: 11.2 miles

Cumulative mileage: 564.9 miles

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tomorrow: 5 miles easy

 

Comments: A thunderstorm forced me indoors.  Which meant that rather than starting at 5:20 or 5:30, I had to wait for the gym to open at 6:00.  So I cut my run a little short.  If I can run outside tomorrow, I'll run an extra couple of miles, albeit slowly.

Off

 

Tomorrow: 6 miles pace

 

 

 

Comments: OK, I took an unexpected day off.  For the third day in a row, I woke up in a funk, and I decided an extra day off would do me more good than a run.  I'll do today's run tomorrow, and then, depending on how I feel, I may make up the off day later this week, or I may just let it go.
