I felt much better running this morning. A little faster and it seemed a little easier.

I noticed something interesting comparing this run to yesterdays run. Each of the first 4 miles today were within 2 seconds of the of yesterdays run and my HR on each mile was within 1 bpm of yesterdays run. Not that I was trying to do this but it's just interesting that it could be so close on my fairly hilly route. I would have suspected that there would be more variation when I Just Run.
