Easy run 8 mi oustide (7:56 avg), legs felt flat due to treadmill running over the past several weeks.  I felt good on the hills, but I could tell I've lost some economy/efficiency while running on the flats.

Easy 20 mi run by myself over a course with several long hills.  I ran an out and back so I hit the same long steep hills through out the entire run.  Legs were fatigued and felt sluggish on the hills at the end.  I could also tell my feet aren't use to the sidewalks, but my shoes are getting up there in miles.
