June 16th Pacers - Greenberry Run

Time: 41 minutes
Distance: 5.3
Weather: 80% humidity
Temp: 70
Time: 5:00 AM
Terrain: Flat and dry, no rain today
Route: http://www.mapmyrun.com/route/us/va/arlington/380123906652446749

Comments: I went at a pretty comfortable pace, was able to hold a conversation pace the whole way, until the end when I was heading up the hill pushing hard.

I felt a little sick before the run, felt fine during it, but then felt pretty sick after the run again. I'm sure everything will be fine, just annoying that's all.

Days until MCM: 131 days

June 13th Pacers - Long Run

Time: 1:37
Distance: 10.8 miles
Weather: Warm, not to humid
Temp: 76
Time: 7:20 PM
Terrain: The route was pretty flat all around, pretty much all paved.
Route: http://www.mapmyrun.com/route/us/dc/washington/461124493687082148

Comments: I went at my own pace and enjoyed the run quite a bit. I was supposed to go 12 miles but made a mistake on the route and only did 10.8, oh well! Did I realized how much further along I am from last year, when I got an e-mail telling me my run should be 5 miles, and last year I was following the virtual trainer pretty closely! The route was also a good portion of the MCM so that's always good training.

Days until MCM: 134 days

Comments: We went at what felt like a pretty nice pace, and we kept it consistent through the end. Felt no pain in my foot again, so it seems like I am good to go and to train hard.

June 2nd Pacers - Greenberry Run

Time: 43 minutes
Distance: 5.3
Weather: Dry, but 84% humidity
Temp: 70
Time: 5:00 AM
Terrain: Flat and dry on the paths, it was much nicer then last week!
Route: http://www.mapmyrun.com/route/us/va/arlington/380123906652446749

Comments: We took off at a pretty decent pace and maintained it for most of the run. I started to get a little tired near the end, but pushed hard and still finished with the group.

My left foot has been bothering me slightly so I did go out a little slow, but once I was warmed up my foot felt completely fine. I think it just needed to get warmed up, let's hope no injury arises from it!

Days until MCM: 145 days
