5.53 mi, 47:48, 8:38 avg
Ran in Foxwood/Foxhollow area, t-shaped route. Solo run - had texted Joe and Jamie last night but they could not make it. I felt better than expected. The run started out slow, like they've been doing, but first mile was not as slow as usual (10:25 this time), next 4 miles between 8:00 and 8:52, and then homestretch from the gate back to my home at 7:04 pace. Was not looking at lap pace or instant pace while running but just the overall average.
By the time I finished, was no longer trying to run "easy", but most of the rest of the run felt like I was not pushing it (ok, maybe mile 5 was slightly pushing it).
Temperature was about 79 degrees.
Made it on time to 8:30 dental appointment to get the crown on my dental implant recemented.
