Tried to run a steady effort that was harder than I'd tried previously but not a strain in any way. Was amazed to settle in at 7:25s given I hadn't run sub 8:30 before. Splits per Garmin = 7:24, 7:25, 7:25, official time 23:08. Worked the last mile pretty hard up the hills and passed quite a few people but otherwise just ran steady and took it easy on downhills.

Schooner Head, wanted sub-9:00s and got them, but still discouraging how hard it was to run 8:40s.

With Jim on carriage roads, hurrah. Went pretty easy around WHP but still ended at 8:30s.

With Jim, went WHP to EL then back by DBB. Felt fine, started slow but sped up from 8:40s -> 8:20s. Encouraging.

Felt good, caught the cool weather. No Garmin but ran pretty quickly relatively speaking.

Very slow today! Quite warm and sunny, so trotted out to Schooner Head and back very relaxed. Felt a little sore but otherwise fine.

A bit more sore. Tried the Saucony Rides instead of the Hokas today, and after the 1st mile it was OK. Knee is more sore than I'd like after though.
