A simple goal for the run: Control. Don't start out too fast, work toward negative splits.
The resulting graph is almost unbelievably close to a perfect stair step. Each mile at ~15 sec faster pace than the one before.
I'll count that as Success! I always feel like I owned the run when I can control my pace like that.
I spent some time looking into possible short races for the fall and put them on my sidebar. Not committed to any of them at the moment, but it gives me something to aim for.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks!
