Out of the Pace Rut

Mystery Coach emailed a suggestion to quicken the pace and shorten the distance a bit today, which finally lifted me out of the daily 6:50-7:10 paces I've been running since the miles have increased. This kick in the butt worked, as I came home from the run feeling worlds better than when I left.

The goal was 7 miles at 6:20-6:25 pace, and after a too-quick first mile of 6:12 I settled in with 6:22, 6:19, 6:20, 6:20, 6:19, 6:19.

Again, I'm crunched for time so that's all for now. Long run tomorrow to hopefully put the cap on a good week.

Training: 10 miles, 1:07:02, 6:32 pace, w/7 miles at 6:12, 6:22, 6:19, 6:20, 6:20, 6:19, 6:19. Feeling good.
