I got back on the treadmill today and cruised eight miles in 7:24 a mile. Not bad, but not like I have had lately. Usually I have been running a quarter mile in 8:00 pace and then stopping the treadmill and getting a drink as a warmup, and then running the mileage I post about. Today I cheated myself by including the warmup in the above distance and time. So really I ran around 7.5 miles at a 7:13 or so pace, but that's not what the machine said so that's not what I listed on my running calendar or here.
I'll run again tomorrow and maybe Wednesday morning prior to a major speech, and I'll have to see how the rest of the week goes.
