Wanted to get a descent run today, so decided to do a classic run that I hadn't done in over 2 months since I was burned out on it. Ran from my house to the end of the canal and back, 8 miles. Started at 6:45 pace, then gradually picked up the pace the whole way until the last mile was 5:45. I guess it was somewhat of a tinman tempo/marathon pace/threshold run. Felt real good but I was definitely working fairly hard. Cool, nice running weather. 50:45, 6:20 avg for the whole run.
