Final hard run before race

This was it! 6 miles @ race pace (8:23 goal for sub - 1:50 1/2M). But of course I had to try to beat that which didn't make for a very good race strategy. I finished in 46:27 for a 7:45 pace, but my second half was significantly slower than the first: 7:36, 7:33, 7:30, 8:02, 8:00, 7:43. So I have got to show some self-control at the race and keep the first few miles in the 8:20 - 8:30 range.

I am ready to take it easy this week!!
