2 laps around Lake Ivanhoe.  That's 5 miles.  I didn't have a goal in mind other than not to push too hard.

I started with 1.5 miles of warmup.  Oddly, my left hamstring was tight during my warmup.  It felt fine after stretching, though.

I ran 3 miles and progressively ran faster as I went.  I probably started around 9 minute pace and got down under 8 at the end.  I didn't carry a watch, so I don't have exact times.  It felt like I averaged around 8 minute pace for the whole 3 miles, but since I haven't run much lately, it took a lot more effort to do it.

I think I may need to run more frequently.  I don't think I'm getting enough mileage including before my hamstring pull.
