Because of the opening of 42nd Street last Friday, I had taken the week off from running, so this morning was my first day back on the pavement since Saturday the 10th. I decided to push my pace a bit just to see if I could handle it. The schedule called for a 50 minute run. Out of that time, I walked about 5 minutes and ran the remaining 45. My pace during the running was between 11:15 & 11:30 minutes/mile, and my overall pace was 11:59 min./mile.
That's the best pace I've ever turned in.
It was pretty humid this morning, but there was an occassional breeze that felt nice.
