Rigging the average

The weather was beautiful this morning – cool in the mid 40’s.  Felt very good from yesterday’s recovery run.  The plan was to run 2 hours and I went through 7 miles right at the hour mark.  However, the pace was slowly picking up and I got to mile 10 with 36 minutes to go.  For some reason I thought an even 15 would suit me so I put a little tempo on to rig the average at 8:00 / mile.  Mile 11 in 7:04, mile 12 in 5:58, and another 3 minute ½ mile did the trick.  I then eased the pace back to hit 15 at the 2 hour mark.  Pretty close… 15.1 miles.
