    good Neighborhood Normal 6.78 6.78 mi 00:56 08:14 pace

    Chill is in the air. Actually went back inside for gloves. Fifty-five degrees my butt; it was upper forties easily.
    Otherwise, uneventful maintenance miles.

      Nice job! I've worn gloves the past three mornings, but it was still tank and shorts weather for me.

    Maintenance work and inching ever so closer to the pointless goal of 2,000 miles on this pair of shoes.

    Active recovery.
    I chose this route because I tend to run it fast and today I felt better than I ever recall post distance effort. I'm fatigued but not beat up.

      I always struggle with being forced to switch shoes because they get discontinued. Way to break them in and hope they work great long term.

      I hope the new shoes work out, but if they aren't going to work, done wait too long to return them. The run looks like a very solid run to break things in though!

      Glad the migraine went away...running is usually pretty good medicine for what ails you. Save that day off from work for a day when you get a 3 or 4-day weekend. ;)
