AM/Lunch - Flourtown Tempo Loop - 15 miles, averaged 7:28. HR 156. Did an 8-mile AT tempo @ 6:30 pace

3.5 up, 8 miles steady, 3.5 down with a couple strides

6:37, 6:38, 6:30, 6:31, 6:26, 6:28, 6:23. HR 165-169, so basically right at the top of the zone and a bit high and working out of it at the end. Felt comparable to the range I usually do. Used my watch for the first few hundred meters then pretty much just let it autolap.

Weather in the low to mid 60s but low dew point and low humidty. Good workout for me today, but I generally do fine with aerobic stuff. The construction seems to be done on the loop for now, but they messed up my footing in places. Barstools!
