AM- Long run. I want about 22 miles total today, but since I didn't start my run until after 8 am today, I was guessing I would break it up into 2 runs. For the first day since I've been here, there are no clouds, just sunny and hot. The first 10 miles or so of the run were a bit uncomfortable as my body adjusted to the 80 deg and almost 80% humidity, but by carrying water and taking some nuun I eventually got into a nice groove. After mile 10 I just cruised along at 7:10-7:25 pace and felt like I could sustain that forever. There were a fair number of runners at 8 am, but I was about the only one by 10:30. Only got in 18 miles before I had to shower for work (though they ended up delaying that). 18 miles at just over 7:30 pace for the entire run, still feeling good at the end (which is rare for me on my 90 mile weeks). Followed it up with a nice veggie and ham omelet, blueberry pancackes, and chocolate milk (of course) at IHOP. Now, since they delayed my work and the shuttle launch, I think I'm going to take a nice nap. I'll do another run tonight.
PM- 4 more on the beach. This ties my second highest miles ever for a week.
