Been fighting a stomach bug since sunday, so didnt run yesterday. Hit it hard today and flew. Splits:

1- 7:09.2

2- 6:56.7

3- 6:46.4

4- 6:41.3

5- 6:47.1

6- 7:33.0

TOTAL--41:53, 6:59 avg pace

Overall, felt pretty good, actually was a little tight, but ran the middle 4 miles in 27:12, which equates to 6:48 avg pace..not a bad little run. Technically that is GMP, but it almost felt like tempo given the sickness and the heat of summer.

Ran in the middle of a downpour/thunderstorm, best kinds of running that exists! Decided to go hard for 4 miles straight out of the gate. Splits:

1- 6:34.2

2- 6:26.9

3- 6:36.0

4- 6:28.7

Then did a cooldown .5 in 3:55, 7:50 pace. Overall, ran the 4.5 in 30:01, which is well under 7 pace. My tempo miles were not super fast, but were decent given I just up and ran hard. I especially liked the last mile since that is uphill and usually my toughest mile.
