Felt good. Started out at 8:51, slowed to 8:57, hit five miles at 45:18. Finished in 1:14:21, around a 9:17 mile. Never really pushed.
The victory is several fold: I ran faster than usual and on a hot day. Did so after having the Spivey track club workout yesterday. Have not run over 6.5 miles since June 30, when I ran this in 1:12:47, but in 60-degree weather. And, broke the 30 mile in a week barrier, with 31.38 miles since Saturday.
