Had a dandy 11 mile run down Payson Canyon mostly in the dark. Temps in the 50s, just about perfect. Wanted to try and stay with the speedsters Ryan and Ken and push the pace for as long as I could. Ended up finishing in 1:15:30 or 6:51 ave pace. Feeling pretty good about this run as I ended up a bit faster than my fastest time from last year which was just a couple of weeks before my sub-3:08 finish at BCM. It will be interesting to see what happens at St George with my oddball training this year of lower mileage, no speedwork, no races, and no tempo runs other than these occasional faster downhill canyon runs. Splits for today were 6:53, 6:34, 6:32, 6:27, 6:32, 6:33, 6:51, 7:03, 7:21, 7:17, 7:23. Fun stuff!
