North side - 6.25 miles, averaged 7:59. Did some strides. One school-to-school at 4:50 pace. Hard but controlled. Decided not to jump on it like I sometimes do.

Late: 20+ minutes of rolling and stretching, then 30+ minutes of core work.

I can't stop staring at Shalane Flanagan's arms in her finishing pic from the 15k Champs . . .

She's been hitting the perfect pushups!

I thought so. I was like, well, I've never seen her flex. But it's more than that. I was going to tweet Cabada and tell him she stole his finishing pose, but figured I'd make the joke here.
