12 Miles With 4 at Pace
I did this 12 mile run with 4 pace miles since Rick was going out of town and I didn't have days to do the runs separately (the plan called for a 4 mile pace run the day before the 12 mile run). Rick suggested doing the pace miles in the middle, but I liked them at the end. The pace miles were 7:12, 7:11, 7:11, 7:01, and 7:13 (for .73). This was a good run but a little boring since it was laps in the dark.

8 Miles with Single Jogger
I still wanted company on my run! I am getting lonely on my runs. My son agreed to come with me in the single stroller since it has a nice rain shield. He hasn't been on a run in awhile, and he really wanted to go. He now weighs 50 pounds, and I am feeling it in my upper body today still! But it was a great fall run with him, and I'm pretty happy with my times. I was going for a 7:15 in that last mile---so close! Average was 8:09, a decent pace for a long run and fine during the taper.
Last short track workout tomorrow and then a heavy taper with 2 2-milers and 2 rest days!! It feels crazy to have only that left.
