Christmas Eve Eve/Christmas Eve

friday 4.25 miles/40:13/9:28 average pace

Trail run with Zach. Actually, most of it was on a road (literally on the middle of the road, no shoulder whatsoever!) with very little traffic. It was pretty hilly, but not bad. Lots of fun. :)

saturday 11.00 miles/1:45:28/9:35 average pace

What a relaxing and fun run! I kept an easy pace which I only judged by "feel" ... that is, I didn't look at my watch at all. That kept me from focusing on my time and pace and let my mind wander. Actually, the loop went by pretty fast and I felt strong at the end. It was definitely one of those days I could have run forever. Love that.

Here are my splits. As I said, I ran purely by feel and didn't plan on a pace (besides "feels easy")
