I'm happy to report it worked great! My forehead was a little toasty towards the end but I think it's because I'm not used to hats or visors. Can't wait to try it out on some longer runs.
Ended up running just over 7 miles at a 9:13 min/mile pace. Legs were well rested and everything just clicked. My left hip started to ache the last couple of miles so I made sure to stretch well when I got home (as opposed to my usual sit down at the computer or head straight to the shower with no stretching). And I'm much happier now that I didn't waste the entire weekend being a complete sloth :)
