I put in a quick 6.3 miles this morning. My first mile was at a 7 minute 20 second pace (which is insanely fast for me) but then I slowed it down and just did a stride at about 90% effort every third block I came to.

I like to run out of Rochester on the nice flat Paint Creek Trail but then do a turn headed west on Dutton, north on Brewster, and east on Silver Bell back to the trail (and then do the reverse on the way back into town) to get in a bit of elevation. I think that hill on Dutton is one of the worst that I've come across in the area. The stretch of Livernois between Tienken and Dutton is pretty good too.
I haven't run on that trail in a looooong time. I may need to head out there this weekend.
