5miles at the base pace

Today I started training at 6:45pm.
The temperature was 48°F. It was a cloudy and mild evening.

Today's course was the south 5mile loop of the Central Park, actually it is 5.1 miles.

Recently I tended to run at brisk or easy pace; maybe I started at faster or slower pace than my base pace, which is 8minutes per mile, and kept that through the training.

I think it is good training to run at various pace.
However, because I read that the base pace should be the target for most runs to improve aerobic fitness, I tried to run at my base pace today.

I finished in 40'27", 7'55"/mile. Not bad.

The weekly mileage is 15.3, I have 14.7 to go.
