Sorta Kinda Progression Run

I was pleasantly surprised at how fast my overall pace was when I ended my run. I thought it would be :10-:15 slower per mile, but obviously I'll take it. I knew I kicked it in the last mile, but thought my pace for the first half was slower than it actually was and I wasn't pushing the pace at all. Turns out I was pretty consistant for the first three miles, most of which is uphill.

1 - 8:11
2 - 8:11
3 - 8:11
4 - 7:56
5 - 7:45
6 - 7:18
7 - 6:44
last .1 - 6:28/mile pace

Very good day. Even though I don't feel like I need it, I'm still going to take a rest day tomorrow to be safe. I don't want to burn the candle from both ends, so to speak.

Ran 7.1 miles @ 7:44/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 149/165
Paved roads.
Very hilly.
Mid 40s, overcast.
Asics GT-2140, shorts, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt.
