So yesterday I did not run but planted the rest of my trees. I put in a total of 200 saplings this year. I filled in the wind breaks and planted several nut tree species.

I did get a quality run in today. My weekly speed work. Totals were 6.85 treadmiles and 62 minutes. 1 mile warm and cool-2 min recover between each segment
1X3K @ HM pace-7.1mph
1X2K @ 10K pace-7.5mph
1X1K @ 5K pace-7.9mph
1X800m @ 3K pace-8.1mph
Just for fun I kicked the mill up to 8.5 mph at the end of the workout.....to think I used to run 5K's at that pace!? I held on for about 40 seconds!
