Easy Run - 8K
Brian and I went out for an easy 8k run. For mid-June, the temperature was on the cool side of normal (about 22 degrees C.) with a breeze from the south. Having done speed work last night, I didn't really want to push it and it was, after all, supposed to be an "easy" run. We ended up doing just over marathon pace (4:52/k.) for most of the run, with an average of 5:01/k for the entire run including the warm-up mile. A few replenishment carbonated barley-based beverages afterwards plus a swim in Brian's pool, and I felt pretty good about the run.
