Set out this morning with a moderate or easy pace in mind and would let the pace be dictated by how I was feeling. After a few miles of warming up, the pace dropped and continued to do so throughout the run. Splits were 8:18, 8:07, 7:32, 7:23, 7:02, 6:57, 6:49, 6:42, 6:36 and 6:26.
Pretty pleased with that, especially since it felt really easy and I didn't feel like I was pushing it. Also good to beat the heat. Another 90 degree day on tap, but looks like we'll get a little bit of a break in the temperatures over the next few days.
Ran 10.0 miles @ 7:11/mile pace.
Lower to upper 60s, sunny, humid.
Saucony Kinvaras, shorts.
