We got up around 5am and I convinced Ellen to join me. We planned to go outside but it was raining. We got to the gym at 5:25am and I had 4.75mi to run so I told Ellen it would take about 45 minutes. I started off at a 9 min pace for the first 2 miles. After I felt warmed up I sped up a little. I decided to increase the speed 0.1 mph every quarter mile. When I hit 4 miles I was going 7.7 mph and bumped it up to 8.0mph at 4.25 and 8.7 mph at 4.5mi finishing 4.75 miles in 39:59.
