CC Park 8 Miles

Ran 8 miles today with Zach, his half marathon training long run for the week. We did a loop through Cherry Creek Park, nice route. We left about 1:30, it was starting to get cloudy and windy. The temperature was in the mid 30's.

The footing was kinda slick in spots, especially the shade.

We cut through the woods on the trail, it was snow packed, but not bad.

At 5 miles we stopped and took a gu and water break. Trying to get Zach used to taking GU for longer runs. He did OK, but made some faces, said his stomach was a bit queezy. Later he said he felt a pick up from it.

He did good. We did about an 8:20 pace the first 5 miles then slowed down on the 2 miles of hills coming back, cut through the estates and ended up with 8.1 miles, he had a good kick coming down our street at the end, so he had something left in the tan. Phoenix Half marathon is 6 weeks away.

He was scheduled to run 3 today and 8 tomorrow, but we switched days because the weather is supposed to turn tomorrow and be sub 20 degrees with 3-5 inches of snow.

8.1 Miles 1:08:45.
