Doing my Saturday long run on Sunday because of yesterday's cross country meet. So, Friday will be my day off and I'll take a little bit easier on Monday and hopefully be ok with the schedule switch.
Ran 10 miles at easy pace with Cynthia, starting from Longleaf, heading up Starkey Blvd, into the park a little bit and then turning around back the way we came. Actually, at 4.5 miles, Cynthia stopped for a bit while I ran out to 5 miles, turned back and joined back up. She only wanted to do 9 miles and wanted to finish a little stronger. For the 10th mile, went a little bit faster so I'd be ready to transition into the 7:50ish pace after having run in the 10:00's for the first 9 miles.
Although we had gotten an earlier start, it was getting later now and I was a little worried about the last 6 miles.
First two miles were a little tough and just at the slow end of what I wanted (7:56 and 7:55), but I slowly got a little faster and did better at the next 4 miles - 7:49, 7:44, 7:49, and 7:30.
