From the house at 9:40 AM. to LPT, out and back. Sunny, 50F, winds variable 2-8 mph.

4 mile tempo @GHMP and 3 mile tempo @ GHMP (HMP = 8:15)

3 mile warmup

4 mile tempo (8:07,8:09,810,8:01) 8:07 Avg.

1 mile easy

3 mile tempo (8:11,8:16,8:17) 8:15 avg.

2.1 mile cooldown.

I feel okay about this workout. A little dissapointed that I faded so much in the second tempo. But that's what this is for right? To push myself.

If I can run the half with an 8:15 pace, that will be 1:48:05. My goal is to beat 1:50, so I'll keep working on the 8:15 target in my workouts.

Although not reflected by my pace, I felt gooder than usual today.

Early lunch. From the house to LPT out and back.

Weather: thank goodness it wasn't "60 dgrees  and sunny, with calm winds" today, that would've really been a drag.

Exact same pace as yesterday.

Got a late start (2:00 PM). On the Bluff trail. Light rain, 39F wind out of the NW 4-12 mph.

After the first mile I started feeling dizzy/vertigo. I thought maybe it was the strong crosswind playing with my sense of balance. I stopped at mile 3 to see how I felt and I felt weak and shaky...but I decided to press on another mile and turn around for 8. However, when I got to 4 miles I started feeling alot better so I kept going to 6 then turned around. On the trip back I started feeling really strong with my last 3 miles avg. 8:15/mile. So, optimism wins again.

Slogfest on the Bluff trail. Partly cloudy, 52F, wind variable 8-15mph. Weather looked better today than it has for awhile, so I won't complain about the wind...the windy wind...not going to complain...

Barely got my 60 for the week, but at least I did it in six days so tommorrow can be a rest day. Shooting for 70 miles next week.
