I decided NOT to do this at my normal 6am hour due to the monsoon and 40 degree temps. Waited it out till about 2:30, and wow, it was perfect! Couldn't have asked for better, sun was bright, high 50s. I should have run this around a 9:00'ish pace, but when my plans were thwarted to an afternoon run, my window of time was more limited. I wanted to get home by the time the boys were waking up from their nap & had to get a lasagna in the oven for the game :) So, the pace was pushed just a bit harder than it should have for a final LSD before my race. Hal would have been shaking his head, lol. Splits: 9:06, 8:57, 8:43, 8:36, 8:40, 8:45, 8:47, 8:56, 8:48, 8:44, 8:41, 8:39, 8:40 (last .20)
The first 7 miles felt effortless. Besides having to dodge traffic, pedestrians, and road construction (treacherous footing) in downtown Newburyport, it was awesome. The remaining 8-12+ had many gradual uphills, and my legs were feeling it. Lungs felt great, but legs were just sore, which I gather had to be from the tempo run yesterday. All in all, though, a great run, very happy with it :-)
