Training Run

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 35:00
Pace: 8:44 min/mi

Comments: Long night last night so getting up and out the door really wasn't an option. But the weather is rather Lima-esque -- meaning pretty much any time would be good to run today. Unless it was pouring down, of course. But that wasn't forecast until later in the afternoon.

This one turned into a nice payoff for the work earlier this week. Running it I didn't feel it was an overly special effort or that I was even close to the top of my game conditioning-wise. But it was a solid workmanlike effort that came in with every split comfortably under the 9 minute mark.
