    6 miles, with the middle 4 @ goal pace.
    Mile splits: 7:27, 7:36, 7:30, 7:38
    That means I averaged 7:32/mi for the 4 miles, which is exactly where I want to be (7:37/mi or better).

      4 weeks of rest is actually what they recommend once a year. I haven't done it yet, but then I have accumulated many, many, many weeks of rest before I resumed running again at age 45. So I figure it balances out in some kind of cosmic arithmetic. Meanwhile, good stuff, Barb!

      @ T! Aside from herons, I think Albatross are amazing, ever since I learned they could go for days on days without ever landing on anything just riding air currents. Wild stuff. Also: the stairs comes from you actually, l heard you say "Are those stairs, not covered with snow.......?" :P

      Nice lollygagging today! I hope you don't join those geese in their feast, I think it would be kind of icky, whatever it is. Probably shoots or worms.

      A good workout. Variety is good. As for hydration, I never used to drink or eat. Alan T told me I was a fool, and should do it. I tried it. I learned to absolutely LOATHE gels. I will never touch another gel for the rest of my life. I kind of like fruit rollups though. Those are tolerable. I drink water because I think I should, but it makes me urp, and Gatorade *really* makes me urp, but it did seem to help me cramp less on a half, so I plan to drink the stuff on halfs in the future.

    Meandered to the beach and back. Mostly this involved dodging geese, goslings and their copious amounts of poop. ;) But I didn't mind...it was a zen-ish run. Windy, overcast, but very humid.
