5 minutes @ 8

5 minutes with strides

Planned to go 5 minutes at 9.6 and 9.8 but I was hitting AT pretty good and called it a day.

Did about 10 minutes on the elliptical in reverse to work the glutes and hamstrings after.

PM: 10.5 miles mostly easy. 52 but dry and chilly. I'll take it.

Faster mile (6:36) to close. That was my slowest split in Philly Marathon and it was uphill into a good headwind.

Philadelphia Marathon finish: why has my left wrist gone limp?

PM: Treadmill - 8.25 miles.

Light, impromptu workout. 2.5 up, 4 x 1 mile @ 6:15 w/ quarter jogs, cooled down to 60 minutes. Not much of a workout but I just didn't feel like plodding. Just a little something to knock out the cobwebs. Probably another month before I get into a more structured workouts schedule, but we shall see.

PM: Trails - 14 miles. Just over 2 hours.

Did one faster mile on a relative flat section with some rocky segments in 6:45 to steal a Strava CR. About 60 degrees. As I was coming through one of the parking lots a hipster was pulling an arrow out of a tree. Apparently he was doing some bow and arrow practice Weatherman-style across the path I was running. A very weird sight. #keepphillyweird.
