Whoa, whoa, whoa

I went out for what I intended to be an easy 30 minute run this morning.

I did my normal loop from my apartment to Astoria Park and back. I was really excited to go out because the weather is finally warm enough to run outside before work. I was also had a new playlist and the weather was absolutely perfect.

Now I don't know if it was the music or the withdrawl from this route, but I managed to finish at an 8:15 pace. Um, what? I mean that's not super fast, but my easy pace is usually over 8:45 when I'm on the treadmill. I double and triple checked, and yes, that was my pace. Holy crap! When did running become easy?

Who knows, maybe my goal of an 8:00 pace for Fairfield is actually a reality.
