I got my normal Saturday long run in this morning. My plan called for an 8 mile LSD, and after yesterday's rest day, I was looking forward to getting back on the trails. I have been feeling pretty good physically and mentally the past few days. I definitely feel like I am better condition - putting in more miles with better times with less effort.
It was warm and humid even at the start at 7AM. I started off with the Cal Coast group and traded a few pleasantries with some of the other runners as we went down the hill toward the Upper Back Bay trail. I settled into my pace for an otherwise uneventful 4 miles out and 4 miles back.
