20 minute trail tempo at 8 min/mi. Ran from my house to a natural area which is in a valley with no shade. Nice hot run (95 degrees). Also my first run in my new Ultimate Direction race vest. Vest felt weird for about 10 minutes, then I didn't notice it again. We'll see how it holds up to tomorrow's long run. 

This week marks my first 40 mile week since probably 2013. Pretty happy about that. Especially happy about finishing the week with no soreness or aches to mention. 7 weeks til race day.
