Predawn midweek run with last 20 mins at faster pace

This morning woke up at 4:50 a.m. because Danilo had to wake up earlier, but I waited for my father and we went out at 5:25 a.m. to the mirador. The plan for today was to do 8k with the last 4k at 8:15 per mile or so. Started out easy, with 24:19 for the first half, of course the pace felt a lot faster than that, but I was feeling good, inmediately after that I increased the pace to start the fast part, next km came in 5:06, great! I knew that if I could maintain that pace I would be fine till the end, next km came in 5:00 or so, it seems that in the last 2 kms, I increased significally the pace since I finished in 19:40 the last 4 kms, finishing the 8k in 43:59, my father finished in 50:05, I blew the purpose of the run, ran too fast in the last 2 kms, I should have run between 20.20 and 20.30 for the last 4 kms, oh well!! maybe next time!! felt a bit tired at the end!! and the reason I did only 8 kms is because this is a low week.
8k total 43:59 (24:19,19:40).
