Last night's run: 6 miles - first 3 at 11:30 pace, mile 4 at 11:19 pace, mile 5 at 11:05 pace, mile 6 at 10:54. Not sure if it's the several days of no running, or the crap I've been eating recently, but it was really hard work, particularly the first 3 miles. Anyways, I got through it and felt great afterwards.
Today, I have a 5-mile steady run at 10:53 pace. think I'll have to do a warm-up mile before I can get to 10:53 pace. :-)
and I had a brekkie date w/ the guy I cancelled on last night - he's sorta growing on me.
