Temps in the lower 50s and plenty of sunshine had me really looking forward to my run this afternoon. Another fine day to wear shorts! Tackled some awesome hills, including Mt. Hope at the beginning. Summit is reached about five miles in. Ran a gradual downhill and then turned and took another steep climb back up to the ridge, followed by another drop and climb and then a rolling downhill.
Felt great during this run. Decided to kick it in a little for the last two miles. Ran those last two in 7:03 and 6:28 respectively. Came easy, which was nice, but I also had gravity on my side (see chart below). Darn good workout.
Ran 16.0 miles @ 8:04/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 147/172
