PM: 10 miles moderate pace down to marathon pace - averaged 7:06. Did 3 brief strides.

Breathing was pretty high but my first few miles were quick for me. Hard to believe a month ago or so I was running 21 miles at this pace and four weeks ago I ran 26.2 miles 2 seconds faster average than my fastest mile today, which was 6:24.

Weight is getting down to off-season range. I'll likely mess that up spending 10+ days at my parents'. At least there is no real snow in the forecast so I can get my miles in.

53 degrees and sunny. A rare day in Maine for Christmas. Run was not super pleasant given the amount of crap I ate. Usually it doesn't bother me but the OJ and jelly beans were beating me up. 

Merry Christmas, FRB!
