PM: 14.3 miles, averaged 8:05.
First day of teaching, which went well particularly given that it means I am getting paid again and contributing to society. Students were great.
Came home and took a nap, you know because working from 8-12 is exhausting. Slept quite a while. Still felt tired when I got up, but needed to get in a workout. Scheduled called for 45' tempo @ marathon effort. Good conditions, and I figured 7:30 pace was probably going to end up being the right effort, which is frustrating given the number of hours I have been exercising, but it's where I am at (officially my slowest since probably 2011). But I know things will start clicking from here.
Felt strong throughout the tempo and could have pushed to 10 or 12 miles. I got tired but breathing and legs were good.
Splits: 7:30, 7:29, 7:27, 7:30, 7:28, 7:30, 7:25, 7:18 (7:28 average)
4 up/2.3 down
