6 miles this morning along the banks.  I told myself pre run that I would take it easy today, but my competitive side came out twice when people passed me today.  the first time I guy passed me at around mile 1.5.  i passed him and decided to run 1 mile at MP to see how my legs felt.  they held up fine.  the second time, a lady pushing a stroller sped up to pass me after i passed her ging at an 8 min pace around mile 5.  dont know why i let this get to me, i mean good for her to be able to run sub 8 min pace while pushing a young baby wth you, right?  regardless, this was probably ill advised, but I decided to run a .5 mile interval at 6 min pace.  i was moving along but my lungs were feeling it after.  finished up with a .5 mile cool down.  avg total pace was 7:40.
