Plan was to run whatever pace felt right. Given yesterday, I anticipated a pace of 8:15-8:30/mile, especially with the soup. Never pushed it and the 7:53/mile pace came really easily. Energetic throughout with a pace that picked up as the run went on. Good hills on this route to boot. Quite pleased.
If I could have done one thing different, I probably should have refilled my water bottle. It was drained halfway through the run. It would have been easy enough to get some from the outside faucet of somebody's seasonal home/camp that wasn't there or simply ask someone.. plenty of people outside working on their gardens. But I was no worse for the wear and I didn't really feel all that thirsty until I got home.
Ran 20.1 miles @ 7:53/mile pace.
Moderately to very hilly.
Lower 70s, overcast, extremely humid.
