Good 6 in the cold

Got my second 6 miler on a Sunday in earlier today. Both last week and today felt good. I used the same route for both runs, a nice rolling course. Last week I started a little slower for the first half, running at 9:15/mile pace and then finished stronger with the last three at about 8:45/mile. Today was much more even, all six miles at 9:00/mile.

Gradual progression scheduled now as I up the distance for my Tue/Thu runs to 3 each and the Sunday run goes to 7 for the two weeks, then 8, then 9, then 10...

Once that far, it should be almost warm enough to run some track work and get into the real FIRST program to get ready for some summer and fall races.

It feels good to be back.

How are your runs going?
