8.28 mi, 1:04:42, 7:48 avg
5:30 run at Longleaf with the Striders. Easy paced warm up until the water stop (3.1 miles), then did 4 mile tempo run with splits: 6:56, 6:57, 6:57, 6:48
Goal was to get under 7:00 for the tempo miles, which I did but it was very hard, but I did do it. Probably would not have if I didn't set a goal this time. Good to know I can still go faster when I want to but also shows I'm a bit off from where I was. Time to fix that.
Weatherwise, it was wonderful. Talked to several friends after the run. I think I could try to hang on with them next time and it should hopefully be easier.
