Schedule called for 8-10 mile easy run. Headed out from my house, to SR54, and then north onto Starkey Blvd bike trail. But, also took a little detour to drinking fountain outside the Longleaf pool for some extra water. Had a 10oz bottle with me, gatorade and lots of ice which was diluted more after topping it off. Tried a Roctane gel, salted chocolate, tasted pretty good.
First mile was fairly slow, but not painfully slow at 9:47, then the rest of the miles were between 8:20 and 8:50. Had a couple of puddles on the trail to detour around. It was a pretty nice morning with not too many distractions. Knew I was going to skip the water stop on the way back so ran out a little more than 5 miles before turning around.
Tomorrow will be a short and easy run and then Sunday will be 20 miles, but broken up into 2 mile warmup, followed by 3 sets of 4 miles at MP goal pace, then 2 miles easy pace. Hopefully the switching paces won't make it feel longer, should be ok.
