AM- My post-marathon break is over. Time to get back to work, starting with my first pre-work run since Sept 11 (my longest no-weekday morning run since January). 6.5 easy. Legs finally starting to feel better, unlike Sat. Planning on 70-ish miles this week, 90-ish next week.

PM- 7 more miles, mixed in between 5 pieces of pizza.
