12 miles easy through Rock Creek at about 7 min. pace.

 It was hot but not that humid and I ran in the shade.  I feel soo much better now that I took yesterday off.  I  think I may try to increase mileage and still take a day off each week or every other week at least.  We'll see once I start in with the workouts.

4 easy at lunch

DC Roadrunners Run After the Women 5K --> 1st overall 16:55.  The first mile was 5:42 but after that I increased the pace and fealt very strong at the end.  I think the greater mileage is starting to pay off.  Eventually adding workouts and being consistent will really bring it together for me in the fall....16:0Xs maybe?

Off today.  I wanted to run an easy 5 to make it 60 but patience is a virtue and I've come to realize that at this point I may be the type of runner that needs one day of rest each week.  I feel so much better.  I'm counting on that tomorrow as I am running the Father's Day 8K tomorrow evening. I will be in the 60s soon with one day off per week...unless I feel that the day off is not necessary.  I will probably add more short morning runs to the mix and consistently maintain 65 mpw once I get there.  Then add workouts.
