I needed to do six miles today to make my goal of 20 miles for the week, otherwise I’d have to run tomorrow. I also wanted to do a speed workout, which makes 6 miles a bit of a stretch.
I ended up doing 4 x half mile repeats at an 8:00 pace with slightly less than a half mile walk/run in between. With my mile warm up and a mile and a half cool down, I managed to do 6 miles in 58:57. I pegged all of the half miles at exactly 4:00, despite running in my hilly neighborhood (gotta love the garmin) and then walked for a short while after each one. I think it was a good pace to choose as I was able to manage it (barely) each time and my legs felt like jello by the time I was completely done. So, with four runs this week, I hit 20 miles and included a hilly run, a long run, speed workout and an easy run. Success!
Now I get to enjoy hanging out in the backyard for a cookout with friends, where we will hopefully finally finish the “holiday” beers we bought in December LOL. Maybe I’ll be back tomorrow with a review for Glaven…

uh oh, doesn't look like review was done, but Glaven's been pretty quiet, so maybe you're in luck 🙂 Hope it was a great weekend.
Good job for doing a tempo workout on your own! I always wimp out when I have to do them by myself.
Great job on the weekly 20 and speed/hill workout! Hope those beers were fantastic!
Way to knock out that final 6!
Yes, I read your review in today's post, but reviews of beers that I haven't had some of just make me cry.So congrats on making me cry.You're like Teh 'Bride: You have a real preference for those dark beers, huh? And WAY TO NOT SHARE your porter, sister! I'd've done the same.I realize this comment belongs on your newer post but … whatever. So kill me.
