It was starting to get warm, but I felt the strongest I have felt in a couple weeks. I had quite a fan club at the park, asking me how fast I was running and how far. Tempo was 6:25 pace, 1' intervals were around 6:00 pace, and 30" were 5:40-5:15. I finished the 30" intervals quite strong. 3' jog after the tempo, 5' jog after the 1' intervals.
I started the Stand last night. I used to have a lot of Stephen King, but I thinned out my library. Not sure why that was where I cut. What else would you read over a long break (or during retirement)?
I officially broke my 80-day run streak from 2013 in Indiana. I was doing much higher mileage, but sometimes a day comes up when getting a run in is difficult or you just need a day, particularly in heavy marathon training. Those muti-year run streaks are truly impressive.
Still waiting for my bike to come in. Very anxious. It feels like the pure joy of Christmas when Christmas is still fun when you are a kid
