Nice run down Payson canyon. Trying to start working in some faster miles to prep my legs for what I hope is a Nebo 1/2 finish around 1:30. Plan was for 2x2mile repeats at faster than HM race pace, but with the route down this canyon it worked better to do a 3 mile tempo (pretty much all downhill), take a breather on the flat past the cattle guard then do 1 more tempo mile on the rolling downhill closer to town.
First 3 miles were in the 6:30-6:45 range and last less-downhill mile I just barely snuck in under 7 min at 6:59.
Hopefully my quads aren't hamburger the next couple days.
