Easy run with Ted in the morning. Only 6 miles, mini-taper for the Thanksgiving 4 miler tomorrow in Orem. Chased 7:30 guy, got him shortly before 5 miles. Then part of the way into the last mile I suggested we try to break 6:00 on the last mile. We managed 5:56 with the quarters of 1:42 - 1:28 - 1:23 - 1:23. Total time 43:13. HR was better - 120 at 8:00 pace (normal), 131 at 7:10 pace (5 bpm too high), 159 at 5:32 pace (2 bpm too high, but I did not hold it for long enough to see if it would drift).
The overall feeling at 5:32 pace was also better - it felt comfortably sustainable, at least during the 0.5 mile stretch. But that does not mean much - I've had days when 5:30 felt sustainable for 1.5 miles, and then all of a sudden I had to slow down to 5:45. Tomorrow I'll have a chance to measure the degree of my recovery.
Ran with the kids in the late afternoon.
