Ship’s Log–October 15th


I managed a decent run this morning. I had intended to take it easy, keeping my pace just below 10 minutes a mile so that I would have energy to do a little weight work when I finished. I guess I was feeling my oats because I ran the first 3 miles at just below 9 minutes a mile, so I wound up doing a little less intense work with the weights.

I’m thrilled that I was able to maintain that sort of decent speed for my run. I take it as a sign that I’m on the mend.
