Yep, 5AM, THANKS POLLUX!! Getting up really didn't feel bad, but the first 1/2 mile felt like I had 0 foam sole in my shoes. That went away but even through 4 miles, it felt like I was running solidly while still somehow over 7:30 pace.
Pollux took a bathroom break, I jogged, and the return trip was more normal. 7min miles and finished with a sub 6:40. Starting my transition back to fast running.
