Run around the neighborhood.

Time: 6:30 AM
Weather: 72 deg. F., 91% humidity
Distance: 3.1 miles
Mile 1: 9:26
Mile 2: 8:34
Mile 3: 7:45
0.1: 0:44
Total: 26:30
Pace: 8:32/mile

By the way, official race time for yesterday's RTW race was: 25:59. What a difference 30 seconds make. Yesterday, I thought I was going to die, today, the whole thing felt "what a great morning to be running" pleasant.

Hey Holden. It was good to see you at RTW. I think the negative splitting was part of the key.

On the contrary, I was told by Stan and Andrew (at Luke's) is that I need to go out a lot faster at the RTW 5K, that I had too much gas at the end. What I really need is a plan (to break 23 min), so my goal is to "learn" what a 7:25 mile pace feels like (I read that Paavo Nurmi did weeks of training at 4:10 interval pace in order to set a mile world record in 1923). Who knows?
