Back in April, I did a two mile run that was below 15 minutes. It took me 5 months, but I just repeated the feat. Something about summer that slows me down. I have been running these two mile runs between 17 and 18.5 minutes all summer long. My theory for the summer slow down include the heat, and perhaps some allergies affecting my lungs.
Other recent exercise highlights include a 5 mile run 8 days ago, a 4 mile run 3 days ago, and a 27 mile bike hike on the Cannon Valley trail between Welch and south of Red Wing 2 days ago. For reference, I did that 5 mile run at a 8:53 pace.
