3 easy and a familar face

3 easy miles on the schedule today. I failed to get up with my alarm this morning so I had to do it this evening. This kind of puts me in a jam because the 6 on tap for tomorrow will have to be done early in the morning. So, I really took these 3 easy, knowing 6 more were coming within the next 10 hours or so.

Here are the stats:
Total distance - 3 miles
Total time - 41:05
Mile 1 - 13:38
Mile 2 - 13:40
Mile 3 - 13:47
Average pace - 13:41 (target pace for the Half on Sunday)
Temperature - 70.7 degrees
Humidity - 56.8

I felt really good at that pace. I think I may be able to hand around there for 13.1 miles, provided the temps are good. It's looking like it's going to be a little cooler than it was this evening for the half so I'm feeling pretty good about the possibility of going sub-3. We'll see.

Oh, and who came up behind me, flying by at the speed of sound? None other than Pasadena's own Keith. What an honor to see this legend as he goes for a personal record 70 mile week this week. I found Keith at Memorial Park tonight during his 9 mile jaunt, his second workout of the day. Go Keith!!!

It's looking promising for that half, all signs point to a kick ass race! :-)

See? I thought yesterday was a little warmer. Seems I was right.
