I was contemplating taking a day off today since my calves were still a little sore and I had done a lot of miles last week, but I decided to take my workout stuff to work and see how I was feeling at lunch. Sean told me not to do hills today after the long run on Saturday and just to get the miles in today. If I wasn't going to run, then I would do a little cross training and lifting instead. When i got to the locker room, two of the faster guys who I occasionally run with were there and about to head out for a 7 mile run so I decided to join them. It was nice having someone to talk to while I ran and definitely made the time go by a little quicker. At the end of the run, one of the guys ran a ways ahead of us so I cranked out a really quick last 600 yards or so to catch him before the finish. My calves were kind of tight, but they loosened up during the run and I didn't have any hamstring soreness at all. I did the ~7 miles in 50:30. I haven't measured this route with my garmin before so I don't know exactly what pace I was running.
