Today’s run on the treadmill was supposed to be on the longer side, but easy. I had planned to run 10 miles at a smooth pace of around 8:20 per mile. Somehow, it felt a lot harder than that. The lower outside part of my left calf was feeling a bit of strain during the latter part of the run. I was tempted to stop but it loosened up towards the end of the run. I ended up running the 10 miles in about 84 minutes.
In the evening, we went out to dinner with Kristi who has just returned from the Roth iron-distance race in Germany. She told us about how tough the race was (because of the heat). She did well though, and so did Kristen.
