02/19/2016 Sometimes it all comes together on a run

Today, I turned in my longest, and strongest run, in awhile.  Sometimes, you go out and the run is a struggle no matter what you do or how fit you are.  When that happens, you go home and forget about it as fast as possible.  Sometimes though, a run like today happens and everything in the world feels good.  I ran an 8.5 mile run with a good amount of rolling hills in 1:07:46.  That's a pace of about 7:57/mile and the splits are as follows:

1
8:57--8'57"/MI
2
17:15- 0:39 (7%)8'18"/MI
3
25:20- 0:13 (2%)8'05"/MI
4
33:05- 0:20 (4%)7'45"/MI
5
40:50+ 0:00 (0%)7'45"/MI
6
49:02+ 0:27 (-6%)8'12"/MI
7
56:55- 0:19 (3%)7'53"/MI
8
MISSING KEY: ACTIVITY_RUNNING_DETAILS_MODULES_RUN_36
1:04:08- 0:40 (8%)7'13"/MI
Worth noting, and what I am most happy about it, is the 8th mile split, my fastest at 7:13, and the final half mile registered, but not shown in the chart, as 3:38, which is 7:16/mile pace.  What does this mean?  Even 6 miles in, I was able to kick up the speed on some tired legs and get moving.  The fitness is building and today, the world feels right.
