6 Mile Long(ish) Run

I went out on fresh legs tonight and it turned out to be a really good run. I can't believe that I am getting faster - it is so exciting!!

7:07 (downhill from home)
7:57 (I could feel myself slowing down here which is why the next mile I kicked it into gear)
8:11 (uphill to home)

Average pace was 7:39 and BPM was 171.

Before the run I stupidly consumed a bunch of sour Jelly Belly's and then pistachios. Why? My stomach felt gross toward mile 4-5 but it wasn't too terrible. Just stupid.

Recap of the month of November's long runs:

11/9 - 7 miles/8:44/166 bpm
11/16 - 8 miles/7:55/??? bpm (no data on the HR, Garmin issue this day)
11/23 - 9 miles/8:18/168 bpm
11/30 - 6 miles/7:39/171 bpm

I just realized that I do not have my training plan for next week yet - I need to get that from Shawn soon. I am scared to see what he is going to have me doing next. My guess is that it will be more challenging, but I am really excited!

Great run! We were out on the trail today too but not until late, like 11:00. Anyway you were running waaaaay faster. Nice work!

I love the pics from thanksgiving. Great pace on what sounds like a hilly course. We gotta hang out this week, I have lots of pics to show you! :)
