8.23 mi, 1:15:14, 9:09 avg, HR 128 avg, 149 max
Ran in Starkey Park with the Striders. Fun to see all the runners how had run Chicago Marathon last week and appreciated all of the congrats for my 100 miler. But, especially nice to see David Griner who I hadn't seen for a while and had given the group a collective scare (but more so him and his family) about bone cancer which thankfully is dormant for now.
I ran out to the 4 mile waterstop strictly keeping to 131 bpm or under. When I turned around I did 1 under 9:00 mile (8:36) without looking at heart rate and it turned out it was 128 avg. Then did another HR mile followed by one more sub-9:00 (8:09) but this time HR was way up at 142 average for that mile, and finally last mile easy (9;43).
Weather was great, a little cooler with a very light sprinkling of rain.
