Easy Run

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 36:16
Pace: 9:03 min/mi

Comments: The original plan was to do the conditioning workout with weights this morning but there's no way I'm driving across this town in the dark on a donut. So the plan was to atone for the crappy outing of yesterday at least a little bit.

And, as I expected, staying out of the sun helped some. I came within a whisker of my quasi-arbitrary 9:00 mi pace. The first two miles were kind of a slog but the last one felt pretty good actually. Not like I'm ready to PR or anything, just a lot more control than I've had on any recent runs.
