Same thing as last week, I decided to try and hit 5:30-35 for the first mile and just work it down from there. I ran my first mile a bit faster than I was aiming, but I think that was from the adrenaline rush of almost getting hit by 2 cars in the first mile. The second mile was also quicker than I expected, but it still felt smooth. I started to cramp up, getting a side stitch, in the third mile. I decided to just keep the pace the same for that mile, then used the fourth mile as a smooth transition between the two paces. Felt pretty good during it too.
