Dog walkers paradise

Fresh Pond is a very popular place to tempo on Saturday mornings and I can't for the life of me figure out why that is. The place is just saturated with walkers and dogs off leash that believe anyone with out a dog should be thrown out. You really can't tempo there because you spend all your time dodging and weaving and jumping. For better or worse, there we were, attempting a 5 mile tempo. Things didn't go so badly and after a solid hill workout on Tuesday there may be fitness and form creeping into the legs.

Here's the data:
5:16
5:10
2:22
5:16
5:18
2.23

25:54

So something is wrong. The course is either a touch short or my mile markers off. Good effort with Ari and we stayed controlled and measured the entire way. I hope to have another good hard effort tomorrow night and then it will just be distance until the Army 10 miler in DC.

That's all I got.
