Pace: 8:55 min/mi
Comments: For the first time in a loooooong time I ended up going out to run on a whim. With two consecutive days behind me I initially planned to lay off today and get four miles in tomorrow. After dragging all yesterday afternoon I felt really good this morning and just went for it.
I felt like I was in control of the run the whole way, which is a very pleasant development. That my splits were pretty well grouped -- only a spread of 13 seconds between the slowest and fastest -- certainly bore that out. Moreover, while I approached this whole run as an extra, there was really no temptation to cut it short.
And the sunrise was pretty damn impressive as well.
