The weather was cool and it was just perfect running conditions. Nine miles was the order of the day and I started with a spring in my step, a bit too fast, it should have been an average of 8 minute miles, then I over compensated and floated around in the mid 8’s. Miles 6 and 7 I played tag with another runner; it’s amazing what a bit of competition will do. I took advantage of the last couple of miles to cool down and ease back. The end result average pace of 8:05, I am getting quicker and I’ll take it, speedwork proper starts next week!
On the fire front our life is back to normal. Thanks again everyone.
