Saturday: 10 miles rail-trail to Hinsdale; I was going to try to do a negative split but when i turned around I noticed the headwind! So was happy the second 5mi were within 10 seconds of the first 5 miles. 8:40pace/87minutes; Felt great- didn't even think about the achilles. AND my water bottle didn't get stolen!!! I did hide it better- almost ran past it myself.
Sunday: Amherst 5 miler with 2 mile warmup; 39:09/7:49 pace; pretty hilly/windy as the splits show, but a good run for being tired from the tempo run saturday. 8:11/7:28/8:19/7:23/7:46 Had a side-stitch miles 4-5 which is a bummer because the last 1/2 miles is completely downhill- should've cruised.
This week: 32 miles
Game on. It's a process and I love it....
