Ran by myself this morning as Greg was doing a 5K. Ran at a fairly relaxed 8:00 minute pace until I turned the corner at the log cabin and headed up the long hill. Pushed it fairly hard to the top and dropped to a 6:15 pace heading down the hill. Waved to Greg P. on the way down and stopped to talk to Laureen near the bottom. Felt OK running down to Kohlers and looping through Alpine, but feeling a bit tired. Pushed it from the light to the high school and then ran into Verdon heading the other direction. Stopped and visited for a few minutes and he decided to turn around and run to my house with me to get a drink for himself and his dog. Average pace was 8:31 which was slower than last week, but this week's run had a much longer and tougher uphill.
