Shorter run on the schedule today, did not run until 1:00. Drove out to Lakeland to watch Jacob run in the meet. He got a huge side stitch about mile 2, but still managed to finish in about 23:20 something. Weather was hot, race did not start until 10:00. Tom did not run this weekend, seeing if a few days off helps. I stopped by the Mitchell team tent and chatted with the coach and some of the parents and runners.
Got home a little bit after 12:30 and then headed out the door for my run about 1:00. Already 90 degrees outside. There was a slight breeze. I decided I'd just run an easy feeling pace, which turned out to be at the faster end of easy. Not sure why the heat didn't bother me, but am not complaining.
This wraps up my first 50+ mile week since March. Still feeling pretty fresh, avoiding the chronic dead legs like I had last fall going into NYC marathon.
