Afternoon 8.5 miler, decent pace

At about 45 degrees today, it's nearly 20 degrees colder than it was yesterday.  However, the sun is out and that kept it tolerable.  I set out this afternoon simply trying to complete a decent length run for the first time since the marathon.  Although I did find myself having a few aches and tightness on the left side of my body, 8.5 miles later, my run went successfully.  Here are the splits:

1
8:17--8'17"/MI
2
15:57- 0:37 (7%)7'40"/MI
3
23:34- 0:03 (0%)7'37"/MI
4
MISSING KEY: ACTIVITY_RUNNING_DETAILS_MODULES_RUN_36
30:53- 0:18 (3%)7'19"/MI
5
38:24+ 0:12 (-3%)7'31"/MI
6
46:31+ 0:36 (-8%)8'07"/MI
7
54:07- 0:31 (6%)7'36"/MI
8
1:01:41- 0:02 (0%)7'34"/MI
The final .5 went in about 4 minutes so my pace was strong throughout.  Miles 2 and 6 are all up hill and miles 4 and 8 are more downhill.  It felt good to push for a few miles, but my left hamstring was a little tight and weak for some reason and I literally had a pain in my butt on that side as well.  

I will continue to take the training one day at a time and deal with the upcoming colder temps.  I simply need to dress warm and get out there.  Once I get out, I am good to finish the workout.
