Three miles, from the gym parking lot to Lake Wash. Blvd. and Lake Park Drive and back. Time (with my new watch!) 25:48. This run averaged 8:36 / mile.

I hit the lap counter when I turned around at 1.5 miles. First split: 13:16 or 8:50/mile. Second split: 12:31 or 8:20/mile.  Guess I was in a hurry to get back. I did try to fall forward slightly more, but I couldn’t tell that I was actually going faster.

No knee pain. I’m starting to not think about that at all until after the fact. Very happy!
