The temperature was around the freezing point, and there was no wind to speak of. The trails through Springbank Park were bare, but a bit sandy. You had to watch your footing in order to get the most out of every stride. Here are my splits:
4:53 was my average pace, and my average tempo pace was 4:40.3875 (7:31.4 per mile). We only stopped for the traffic lights on King Street at the end of the route on the way back. Still, it was by no means the best tempo run in the past year. I had an excellent run back in August of last year on a 9 mile run (http://blog.brucelamb.com/2014/08/excellent-9-mile-tempo-run-from-gibbons.html) where I was hitting 7:19 per mile.
Anyhow, there is room for improvement -- but it was a good run overall.
