When I woke up Tuesday with the sun, I had a hard time gauging how my legs felt. They weren't sore, exactly, and I finally decided maybe they just weren't awake yet.
I woke them up on the mile to Central Park. In the park, I threw in a few segments at a faster pace - nothing killer but just to change things up. Overall my pace felt comfortable and not too strenuous at all - a perfect GA pace. I was actually surprised when I saw my time because it didn't feel like I was running 8:15 minute miles. I love the runs that feel easy but are surprisingly not slow - these are the runs that make me feel like I am improving and getting stronger.
6.3 miles in 52:37 (8:15 min/mile)
