Back in New Jersey.  This time for only 1 week, so not too bad.  I went back to the mall and did laps again.  I brought my garmin this time and found out that each lap is 1.1 mile and .25 mile from the hotel to the mall.  Anyway, not sure how many laps, but I ended up with 9 miles.  It gets old but it's no worse than a track and much safer than running on these roads where there's no sidewalks.

5 miles around the mall. I ran them in reverse this time which made things....pretty much the same as yesterday. Glad I got some miles in before some long meetings.

4 more miles tonight. Nice and easy as I ran with a co-worker and we were lucky to go sub-10.  Oh well-it was nice to have some conversation for a change.

10 miles this morning, some around the homes behind the hotel, some around the mall again.  I struggle with the pace this morning and figured I'd be lucky to run under 8:00/mile, but htings turned out okay.  I even picked up the pace on 7 and 8 and ran a 5:12 and 5:34 before slowing down for the last two.  I'm pleased with how things are going right now.  I feel like I've rebounded from the few weeks back where I didn't get much running in.

Average Pace: 6:36

Long day.  Got up @ 5 Eastern and worked until noon.  Then off to the Newark airport, only to then get redirected to JFK.  It worked out though as I scored 1st class in the process.  We were 70 minuted delayed in leaving New York so I got to SLC with minutes between my connection to Medford.  I ran, in shirt/tie/dress shoes/carrying briefcase from gate C13 to E 71 just as they were calling my name for a final call.  That had to be worth .5 miles, right?  I'm sure the guy in the seat next to me for the next 90 minutes appreciated my sweat/smell as a result.  Finally got to my home about 10:30 Pacific with no luggage.  Hopefully it makes it tommorow....

Phoenix East run again this morning.  I was pretty tired this morning after such a long day yesterday, so I wasn't really 'feeling' this run.  I didn't have my garmin or my watch as both were in my luggage that didn't make it home with me last night.  1st time in ages that I ran in the blind with regards to pace/time/distance.  It was nice though....  Got some heavy rain about mile 9 that lasted for 3 miles but then cleared up nicely.  I was dead tired the last mile, badly in need of a drink.  Finished off the run though.  Time to incorporate drinks into my runs if I'm serious about a winter marathon.
