Did an 8-mile run this morning, not exactly a “long run” but the longest I’ve done since the marathon. It was so great! One interesting note is that my long run pace seems to be much faster these days, even though it seems like I’m running really easy. I’m about 2 minutes faster during my long runs than I was just 4-5 months ago.
Anyway, I’m a bit tired right now because we were out in 95-degree sun for about 3-4 hours, watching soccer. Boy was it hot! Not a good idea the day before my triathlon, but oh well. :)
Eating wasn’t so bad today.
