AM Ship canal 7 miler at 5:50 pace. Not only did I take 67 seconds off my previous best, I also beat my best 4.34 mile time in segments 3-4-5 (5:46 pace).
That's 36:17 10k pace, which I doubt I'll beat on Sunday (hilly XC vs perfectly flat bike path/jogging path).
This workout felt fast, but did not feel particularly difficult. My main issues was a hotspot on my right foot that was rubbing everytimes I pushed off. It was perfect conditions weather wise.
I just looked back over my running log to see how fast I used to run these workouts before the apocalypse. Almost exactly ten years ago I did ten miles in 57:22 on the indoor track at the U, which is about 4700ft. I was using the 7.5 laps to a mile conversion, but I think that may actually be inaccurate. It may have been more like 9.8 miles. Still, not close to that form at the moment. And also about 8 years ago I split sub 57 en route to a half marathon on that track. Sheesh.
