I ran the first at a strong clip right from the first step and ended even stronger. I ran the first run in 36:26, a nice solid pace of about 7:16/mile. After about an hour off, I ran the second of the runs today at about an 8:26 pace, just over 42 minutes total. I didn't want to push it at all the second time around. I wanted to be comfortable and get my 10 miles in.
All in all, both runs were great. I feel like I got exactly what I
wanted today, considering I had to break my long run into two parts. The one thing I hd an issue with though was my right shoelace. I never have shoelace issues. However, during the second run, I had to tie it THREE times, and left it untied at the end or it would have been 4. What the F?!? I have never been a doubler, but the time has come apparently. My geriatric hands can't pull the laces tight enough anymore. :)
