I had the dark cloud of a dental appointment hanging over my head (not sure why they dark cloud since those have been going pretty well the last few years), so it took my mind of my slight lack of running motivation. Despite this, the run went pretty well today. I biked to the Y, did some core work and stretching then got onto a treadmill. I did 4.51 on the treadmill at about 8:15 pace.
Then I headed outside into the warm and breezy air, ran across the street to the Kinsmere loop plus an out and back on a side street for 4.43 miles at 7:33 pace. I didn't look at all of my splits but one of them was at 7:01, after which I slowed down a little bit because this was not supposed to be a tempo run.
Biked back home, battling through some wind, and had barely enough time to get ready and leave the house to get to my appointment which again turned out ok.
