Tuesday - 8.25 miles
I went running at lunch and was feeling pretty good after the first mile. I completed the 8.25 miles in 58:55. My splits were 7:51, 7:23, 7:15, 7:06, 7:01, 6:57, 6:52, 6:48, 1:42. The weather was a few degrees cooler - only in the upper 80's- instead of the low to mid 90's that I'd been running in so much last week and I had some shade and off and on cloud cover. I ran on a loop that had 1/4 mile markers so it was easy to get in a groove and cruise on the run. I felt strong and was glad I could pick up the pace each mile during the run.
