Thankfully I awoke this morning to rain, which we need much more than my morning run so I postponed that until after work. I went to the downtown Y and started my run from there. The schedule was for a 6-7 mile tempo run so I started at a slow 9:30 pace and after a mile ramped up to an 8:30 pace and kept this up for 5 miles of the run. I felt good except for the nagging left knee pain. I finished 7.3 miles in a respectable 1:03 for a 8:42 average. Good run. Weather was nice except for a stiff northerly wind which I encountered on the return northern leg up the riverwalk.
