15M Progressive Run w/faster miles over last 7 and final mile at 7:22
It was hot and humid. Glad I made the drive downtown to run have my old group (which doesn't really look like my old group anymore). At the outset, there were 15 runners. Of course that fragmented early. We looped the park then met some late drop ins at the parking lot. From there, we went to the polo grounds then back to the parking lot to pick up others. I was feeling okay but it was very humid and it was getting warmer as the sun came up. Randy, Jeff, Augie and I went out. Jeff cut back before we got to Jackson Hill. At Jackson Hill, we crossed and came back up the bayou to the park. I didn't perfectly cutdown over the last 7 miles but the general trend was faster miles. When the final mile came up, I tried dropping the hammer even though I was quite fatigued. Covered the last mile in 7:16.
Happy to have completed this run. It was nice to renew old friendships.
