W10D4

Another midweek 10 miler, but this time I got it done. 2 miles warm up, 4 x 1 mile repeats with 1/2 mile jog between followed by 2.5 mile of cool down. I headed back over to the San Gabriel River Bike Path, this time to the north end. I was happy for the cooler temperatures. I got started in the low 80's and it cooled down from there. There was a nice breeze that keep me cool and dry.

I accomplished the mile repeats even a little faster than I did three weeks ago. I knocked them off in 7:53, 7:44, 7:54 and 7:56. The entire 10 miles took 1:29:49 - 8:59 pace overall. I'm pretty happy with that.

I came home to a Veggie Burrito from my favorite take out Mexican place.

Darrell, this is a good 10 miler. I'm in awe of your mile repeats. Well done, pal.

You'll feel even better when you read about MY attempt at mile repeats this morning :-)

I think you are setting up well for HOA.
