Training – Fri, Jan 23 – Easy 5 Miles

Had a great run today. The schedule called for an easy five miles at an 8:07 pace.

I clocked the first mile at 8 minutes, and increased the pace because I was feeling great. Miles two through four were 7:30. In my last mile, I did a few sprints and brought the pace to 6:40.

  1. 8:02
  2. 7:30
  3. 7:35
  4. 7:23
  5. 6:41

I won’t run tomorrow, as Sunday is the Chilly Cheeks trail run. It’s a 7.2 mile trail race. Sponsored by Pretzel City Sports, the Chilly Cheeks is one of their toughest races, maybe its MOST challenging course on a “per mile” basis. I just LOVE the tagline for this race:

“The only thing colder than this race is the race director’s heart!”

Fifteen avid “hamilton area trail runners” (including myself) will carpool to the race in Reading PA.
