I normally call this one 8.5 based on the trail markers so I'm keeping it for consistency (GPS, trails, short, etc etc). Today was more or less the opposite of yesterday; I ran a more or less "normal easy" pace without regards to HR. It was a hot one out there... hard to imagine it's going to get hotter than this soon but it will. Also hard to imagine marathon training through the summer but I'll find a way. Was pretty hungry from halfway on and feeling kind of beat by the end. Had a smaller lunch than usual... may be a little too drastic of a change to be sustainable but we'll see. #roadto144
Some pretty decent-feeling strides after, just 4x20.
