Nice run. Went out around 3 in the afternoon in 30 something degrees and sun. There was a bit of a north wind but overall very pleasant weather. I went north on the JRP and took the old detour around the construction. I missed the mud but the trail was still "closed" past the area of construction where the new bridge is. For some reason the trail is really ripped up for a half mile or so north of that access point. I wonder what happened.
Where was I?
Oh yeah, I thought that 8:50s would be a good pace to shoot for. Pace isn't really import on a long run but 12 isn't all that long even if it is one of my longest of the year. Anyway, I stuck each mile in the 8:50s except for 2 at the end when I bumped it up and put them in the 8:30s. There was another mile, mile 4 or 5, where the Garmin hic-upped and robbed me of a tenth of a mile or so. The pace was in the high eights at the begging of the mile and then suddenly in the 10s. I need to replace this ancient Garmin eventually. I put the .4 on at the end to make up for my shortcut on Tuesday so I ended up with 30 miles for the week. Now I just have to double that weekly mileage to prepare for Utah Valley.
