2 miles this morning, there was mud from the heavy rain last night and I slipped, so I decided to turn around and loop a dry area. Finished first mile in 9:26 (including my slip and fall :D). Second mile at 10:06 with one stop at the 1.83 mark. 19:32 total time. 

Decided to try out the addidas ultraboost uncaged again. The ankle support is not so great but they were a gift last june from a family member. After some research, turns out thery are good running shoes. They felt light throughout the run and I can't say whether I love them yet. I have ran in them before but it was all really slow miles on treadmill.

Good progress. Now that you have a flat loop, let's try this. Run until your average pace drops to slower than 10:00 (or until you get to 2 miles). Then give yourself a 30 second break, and run again until your average pace is slower than 10:00. Take another 30 second break. See how many breaks you end up taking.

It might be a good idea to plot the loop on a map so you have markers and get 10:00 splits for obvious landmarks rather than rely on GPS.
