slow and neverending

that's how today's run felt. overall it really wasn't bad - kept my hr low and most of my miles were around the pace i wanted them to be for an easy day, but the last 2.5 miles took forever it seemed.

oh yes, and yet again i did not run in the morning as planned, but luckily i've had time to log miles after work to make up for my slackerness. i really prefer to go in the morning so it's done for the day, but i think the cooler temps have contributed to my desire to stay cuddled up in bed instead. at any rate, at least i've gotten in all my runs over the past two weeks even while sleeping in most days.

today was an easy 7, nothing special. no consistency in my times but i was focusing more on keeping the hr below 150 which i was successful at (on average).

mile 1 - 9:08, 148
mile 2 - 8:38, 130
mile 3 - 9:09, 139
mile 4 - 8:54, 145
mile 5 - 9:23, 145
mile 6 - 9:11, 149
mile 7 - 9:44, 148

my right calf got really tight again for the first 3.5 miles. i even stopped to stretch for a minute at about 1.5 miles, and the stretch was painful. gonna try to be good about stretching it throughout the day so it hopefully clears back up again, especially in time for saturday's half.

pm run: 7 miles, 1:04:31 (9:13 avg pace), avg/max hr (143/181)
