1.5 nbhrd loops plus out and back to Grly, 5 miles, 47:29/141, 9:31 min/mi
"Injured" myself putting on my socks! Putting on my right sock, it caught my pinky toe nail and pulled a piece down the side to my cuticle and bled a little. A band-aid and I was good to go. Didn't even notice (or remember) my left calf/Achilles thing for the first 5 minutes of running. I felt it after that, but it has kind of moved around and is milder. I'm taking that as a good sign.
I meant to run a little lower heart rate today, but I think when I do any faster running (like the strides yesterday), I I fall into running a little faster.
Heart rate/pace for the first lap was comparable to two days before MCM (27:52/139 versus 28:04/139), but not as good as 3 or 4 days before MCM (27:58/136 and 28:04/137). Bad sign again?
