Training to run with Wallen

I went out for my lunchtime run a little after 11:30 a.m. I set the virtual trainer on my garmin 201 for 7.50 miles at a pace of 9:15. I cruised through the first six miles with splits of 9:06, 9:04, 9:07, 9:06, 9:09 and 9:05. Starting into the seven mile, the growing heat, the pace and yesterday's work-out caught up with me, I covered the seventh in 9:40 and the last 0.5 mile at a pace of 9:29. Overall, I averaged 9:13, covering 7.50 miles in 1:09:07.

I have been increasing my mileage over the last six months. I have myself pointed towards a couple of events in late 2006 and early 2007. Additionally, as I told Wallen when we were in D.C., I have to train hard year round just to be able to run with him half a dozen times a year!
