Best run all week.
Scheduled run today 2 mile warm up, 8 mile marathon pace "cut down" run, 2 mile warm down. Ran a little bit faster each mile and felt great. First two miles were out and back one mile each way so I could start again from my car. Still right about 50 degrees, having warmed up a few degrees.
Shifted into pace which felt hard for just a short bit of time, with first mile at 7:41, next three miles each got faster. Turned around just inside Starkey Park (just past 4 miles) and pace picked up a little more then did each mile back a little faster, except for the 8th mile which was more than a little bit faster at 6:44
MP miles: 7:41, 7:35, 7:29, 7:23, 7:15, 7:06, 7:02, 6:44
For the warmdown, kept heading south and ran a little bit on SR54 until I had gone far enough so I'd have 2 miles by the time I got back to my car.
Great to have a run where I easily made the goal paces and felt like the run flowed. Sometimes I make the paces but the run feels clunky, and some runs it feels clunky and the goals are not met. Hoping for more of these!
