Which Brings Us To...

Yesterday, August 22nd.

10 miles. In the heat. Midday.

Yeah, you KNOW that was a blast. I burned 1052 calories, and averaged 8:52/mile for the run.

It wasn't the smartest run I've ever gone on. I was planning on running trails, but got sidetracked in the morning with other obligations. So, around noon, I finally went on my run, from the house. I hadn't run that far on roads in quite a while, so when I hit the 7 mile mark, it shouldn't have come as a surprise that I was feeling it. Add to that, the 85 degree heat, and a somewhat stiff headwind on the way out, and I was destined for soreness last night. This morning? I'm actually feeling pretty good.
