AM- Long run, just on the normal lunch run routes, all strung together. 17 miles in 2:07, including doing 2 of the last miles a bit faster, just for fun (6:35 pace). 1000 ft climbing, just from all the hills. Hips and Achilles hurt, so I thought of stopping at 12, but just kept going. First run this long on the roads in a long time, and it's kind of boring by myself.
For the record, the lake we do repeats around is .8525 (I ran around it 4 times and took the average).
Last race of the year next week- I'm mainly trying to have fun (though I'll be somewhat competitive, of course). No races planned after that- not sure if I'll take a break or sign up for something else soon.
