Week 10: 10 Miler

I headed out this morning for a 'marathon pace' run.  Ideally this would be in the 7:45-7:50 pace.  I wanted to head down the first hill hard to avoid a poor pace due to a slow first mile.  I got to the bottom and realized I had left my work badge, and credit/charlie cards in my basement - so back up the hill I ran, then back down.  First 3 miles: 7:29, 8:06 and 7:22 - not exactly a steady MP pace to start.  Miles 4 and 5 were a little better: 7:47 and 7:58.  Then I started charging harder again: 7:37, 7:39, 7:26 and 7:33.  Last mile was 7:47.  So I succeeded in running a good fast pace [7:40], I failed in running a steady MP.  Legs are killing now.
