Thursday - 8.25 miles
I came down with a bit of a cold on Wednesday and felt pretty crummy all day long with a bit of a scratchy throat. I took the day off and drank lots of water and got to bed early. Thursday I was definitely starting to feel better. I ran 8.25 miles at lunch in 57:25. It was very humid out, but partly cloudy and I had some tree cover so I didn't really have to deal with the effects of the direct sunlight. I felt pretty good and wasn't planning on running quite as fast as I went, but I just felt good and was cruising after mile 1. My splits were 7:45, 7:06, 7:04, 6:54, 6:47, 6:48, 6:42, 6:37 and 1:39 for the last 1/4. My legs felt pretty good and my cold seems to be getting better.
