Wow, first time I've had to write "2009" was today. Very crazy, except not really because it happens every year. Ran to Audubon Park with the goal to do 1 lap steady state (6:20-6:30 pace), 1 lap easy, 1 lap steady state, and 1 last lap easy. My first lap of the 1.8 mile course was a bit fast in 11:05 so I slowed it down a little bit for the second hard lap and came in at 11:15. Both were a bit fast, but those paces felt pretty manageable. I was still aerobic for both, but my breathing rate was fairly high and I could tell that if I went a little faster it would start feeling much harder very quickly.
