Pretty good run this morning. Tried doing a little bit more warm up before actually running. That may have helped a little bit. It may have also helped that I seem to do better on the second day of running after a day off. On the negative side I did go out last night with work to dinner for some customers. I did skip dessert and did not completely stuff myself.
I finally started running just before 7:00. I decided on an out and back course from the Y to the horse farm. One of my goals was to try to keep the mile splits from being too spread out. I did pretty good with the first 7 miles between 8:52 and 8:10. Picked up the last two miles. The final mile was at a faster pace for most of it but I was slowed down by a traffic light.
The weather was great outside, a comfortably chilly 51° and nice and sunny.
Average pace: 8:03
Jenny was all set to start her run when I got home so I biked the kids to school. This worked out well since she ended up having a great run.
