7:15 AM - 10 miles, 1:08:45.Comments: New loop from home, gradually picking it up over the last 3 miles in 6:27, 6:05, 5:49. 5 x 100m strides afterward, 1-3-5 on a slight incline, 2 & 4 making advantageous use of gravity.
Busy season is in full swing at PR Running, with cross country getting underway last week and the fall marathon season lurking right around the corner. It's an exciting time to be in the store but it man does it take a lot out of you, well, out of me at least.
My legs are toast, which has about as much to do with running 10 miles first thing in the morning as it does parading back-and-forth on rug-covered concrete for 9 hours afterward. The remedy? Running on soft surfaces when the opportunity allows, a daily icing regimen, kicking the legs up for an hour or so after work and the ever-so-elusive, but ever-so-important good night of sleep.
I need to get to work on that last one, like now. G'night.
