We had an interesting route today, in preparation for a bunch of folks doing a race tomorrow night. I treated it as a tempo run, though, and it went okay. Definitely not flat, but it worked out okay Here are my splits:
7:31 (0.68 miles)
I was looking for 7:30's for the second half of the run, but that first mile at "tempo" had significant uphill (from the park, uphill on St. James St. to St. George) and I couldn't quite hit my times. But I was pleased with the remainder of the run.
8:01 average pace for the full distance.
