I planned to just go out for 5 miles, but then I got going and decided to take cross hollows. Then it turned into a sort of effort run heading down to the stoplight. It was downhill so that definitely helped, but I was giving a good effort by the end. The first mile felt easy going up Main (7:40), then the next mile I picked it up staying relaxed (downhill started about .5 in). 7:06, 6:45, 6:41 for the next 3 miles. That last mile I pushed because it was closer to flat, still slight downhill though. Then I went slow for the next 4 miles just to finish the loop.
