I ran 7.6 miles at the park in the evening after work. I was surprised at how well I felt. The temperature was in the mid 70's and I figured I would be a little sluggish after the progressive run I ran on Thursday. i was surprised how quick my first mile was and by the 2nd mile I was just under. I ran the 7.6 miles in 53 minutes which averages out to just about 7:00 pace. I probably could have gone even quicker but I didn't want to wear myself out too much for Saturday's long run with 11 miles at marathon race pace.
