Friday - 8 miles
After taking Thursday off, I needed to make sure I got a run in so I headed out the door about 10:15 for a nice warm 8 mile jaunt through the park. I'm not sure what the temperature was, but the heat index was probably in the mid-90's and there wasn't too much shade out. I felt pretty good and started out my first mile a little under 7:30 and then dropped the pace down after that. I picked the pace up each mile and got down a little under 7:00 pace. I was moving quick, but pretty relaxed and I didn't want to hammer it too hard with my longest run since Boston coming up on Saturday morning and I needed a little energy for an afternoon round of golf. I finished the 8 miles in 57:30.
