Effort was definitely crossing the zone but I felt pretty good until the last mile, at which time I was ready to be done. It's been a while, far too long, since my last aerobic tempo. I thought I would do this one today whether or not it really does anything for Broad Street. It was fairly warm but dry and with a breeze it felt cool when I was cooling down.
Probably my third fastest 8-mile tempo, but I am fairly rested if somewhat sick and still recovering. Definitely my fastest with a sizable hangover; that's for sure. I think I broke 50 minutes this past fall once and I broke it winter 2014 running with my former running partner, Patrick.
PM: 40 minutes on the elliptical. Stretching .
