Another week down, 56 miles planned, and 56.6 done. Definitely dialed back the easy day effort this week — wore a heart rate monitor that kept the pace low most days, but threw in some Oslerians (2-1-:30-:30) on a hilly Wednesday run and had a good 6 mile tempo on Saturday. Tempo speed still not quite up to snuff — mile splits Saturday were 6:04-5:58-6:06-5:49-5:47-5:59 for a 5:57 average — looking for something more like 5:40 eventually. Overall, happy with the effort. We’ve got 66 on the menu for next week, including 5 x mile at <5:30 on Wednesday and 17(!) mi on Saturday with ~7mi/40mins tempo.
