I needed to get in a run this evening to get myself feeling back to normal after our trip. The kids wanted to go to the gym, so I took them and did a TM run. I set in on the hills setting level 4 which went as high as 3.6% incline and changed incline every minute. I did the first 5 miles at 7.5 (8:00) then mile 6 at 8.6 (7:00) and then back to 7.5 through 60 minutes, which put me at 7.68 miles. I then did a cool down walk to finish out the 8th mile. Accept for the one faster mile the whole run felt very easy and my foot felt good but not perfect.

Nice job...Sounds like your recovery is coming along pretty good.
