04/19/2016 Stretching out for 10 miles, thirsty as hell

Today, I was able to hit 10 miles for the first time since probably the NYC marathon.  I had all intentions of bringing my handheld with some Nuun Energy Tabs in my water.  However, I'm an idiot and don't usually run with water.  Consequently, I remembered my drink during mile 2.  F.  Needless to say, no drink and I was thirsty as hell by the time 10 miles were over.  I ran the following splits:

1
8:26--8'26"/MI
2
16:15- 0:37 (7%)7'49"/MI
3
25:15+ 1:11 (-16%)9'00"/MI
4
33:46- 0:29 (5%)8'31"/MI
5
42:43+ 0:26 (-6%)8'57"/MI
6
51:00- 0:40 (7%)8'17"/MI
7
59:51+ 0:34 (-7%)8'51"/MI
8
1:08:15- 0:27 (5%)8'24"/MI
9
1:15:52- 0:47 (9%)7'37"/MI
10
100 KEY: ACTIVITY_RUNNING_DETAILS_MODULES_RUN_36
1:23:25- 0:04 (0%)7'33"/MI
My fitness is definitely getting there.  My final two miles were my fastest and my overall time of 1:23:27 gives me an avg. mile of 8:21/mile.  I'm at 16 miles for the week and only 2 days in.  Time to keep building.  I will add some speed next week, even if it's abbreviated speed due to my leg.
