8:34 average pace.  Rolled my right ankle a bit (stepped on the corner of a snow-covered sidewalk) and felt slight discomfort in my left knee afterwards when stretching (no pain during the run).  I've been ramping up mileage for the last few weeks, maybe it's time for a down week.

I ran at 9:30 pm at the hotel in Miami (I'm traveling for work this week).  9:00 average.  I definitely feel sluggish running after dinner in the evenings, but my knee felt better...yipee!

Awesome run along the ocean in Miami. There was a great little park with cinder-like trails (pretty impact absorbent) that felt great on the legs. Feels great running in shorts and a t-shirt, although I haven't had sweat dripping down my face in several months.

5.5 am and 3.5 pm

8:05 average.  I ran along the Rickenbacker Causeway...beautiful scenery.  It runs right along a narrow beach on both sides and across the ocean via a bridge.

Ran a 200 in 27.5. My legs feel very sore after lifting two days ago--squats, lunges, plyometric jump squats, hip flexor exercises, calf raises, leg extensions, etc. I feel like an old man when I try to get up from a seated position. It's a good sore though.
