Nice and easy build up, then just over 2 miles semi-hard at about a 7:43 pace, followed by a 1 mile cool down.

Thursday and Friday were just too crazy at work and I put in a couple 14 hour days, but because I didn't run I expected my legs to be fresh.  They were anything but fresh.  The first 8 miles I felt like I was in mud, but I was able to average an 8:30 for the last 4 miles.  It was tough out there!
