02.26.2018 Back from a 9 day vacation, a strong 10 miler

I say I had a 9 day vacation, that just means that the fam was off from school for the week and I didn't get out for any running.  That's ok though, I think I am doing a good job, coming off 140 in January and I had 80 in February before the break.  

I was itching to get out for a run by the time the week ended.  I got out for a strong 10 miler after work Monday, keeping my pace at 7:27/mile.  It felt like an effort, but not an exhaustive one.  

For the first 6 miles, the pace ranged from 7:25-7:45/mile.  I then stepped it up to finish, with the final 4 miles being splits of 6:58-7:13.  Roughly speaking, I had a negative split by around 2 minutes.  Coming off a little break, I was satisfied, even though I got a weird cramp for a mile or so during the run.
