Camping this weekend so I found a grassy, hilly place at the campsite where I ran this workout. It was nice running up some hills.

Sunday – Long Run – 55 minutes.
Campsite in upstate NY. Ran around camp early which was nice and peaceful.

Great week of training plus a race in there too. I was hoping for a slightly faster 800 time on Tuesday but I also have not raced this event in over a year.
My first lap was 61 which was good but then I slowed for the next 300 meters or so and then managed to close in a 15 second last 100. I have a good feeling about my next 800 which is exactly two weeks from the first one.
Went camping over the weekend and it was enjoyable running there in upstate New York!
