good Morning (slow) progressive run 7 mi 01:04 09:10 pace

7:30 a.m., 80 degrees, 71% humidity. Legs were refusing to move for the first couple miles, as if last night's mess threw everything off. But finally got things going and by Mile 3 thought, "well, I'm getting a little faster, let's do a progressive run." And so I did. Was breathing at tempo pace by Mile 6, and at those temperatures, an 8:44 mile could count as tempo.
