Long run! Did OK, found a good cruising pace at 8:25ish after a slow start up the hills, then leg tightened and slowed for miles 7 & 8. Then 9-11 it loosened up again and allowed me to run 8:20s again. Feel better about RtB now.

Nice cool cloudy breezy day for running. Went out toward Sand Beach and back. Started very slow and felt logy, then picked it up a bit when shirtless running guy joined me. Still didn't break 8:30s though.

Felt kind of tired but slogged through anyway. Gorgeous day, felt a little better by the end.

Tried out the new mill. Super nice! Ran 16 minutes warmup, then 8 x 1:00 fast, 1:00 slow, with fast being relative--7:30 -> 6:53 pace. Felt smooth, hope to keep a bit of turnover in the midst of the long(er) pre-RtB runs.

Lots of bopping around on the golf course but nothing involving much exertion.

Fabulous cool, dry weather out. Too bad my legs felt so awful. 4 seemed like 8, and I don't know why.

Same beautiful weather, felt much better during the run today. Brisker pace, legs had more zip. Guess I've been fighting the cold that L and M have.

Reach the Beach. Ran the 9th leg, which I ran in the blazing heat last time (last year?). Much nicer this time, clear and low 60s with a breeze. Tried to run under control, but ended up going out too fast chasing someone. Moderated over the 2nd half, a lot of which was uphill, and averaged 7:30s, which was pretty close to my goal.

Two double legs in a row, yikes. Ran 20 and 21, which were both labeled easy. The first one was, nice downhills a lot of the way, but 21 was a beast, with a huge elevation gain, a lot of which was in one mile straight uphill. Came through halfway in just under 8:00s, but with the monster climbs slowed to 8:10s for an average, which I'm still content with. Then ran 34 and 35 getting close to the coast. They were mostly flat with a few inclines, including overpasses. Had to wait a while to cross Route 1, so that added to my time. Ended up with 7.4 miles at a rather steady 7:45 pace, again not super quick but given the circumstances I'm pleased to be able to maintain that after 23.4 miles within 22 hours.

Slow run, perfect weather. Legs still feel deeply fatigued, but no new sore spots, so that's good. The ITB and nerve are still pretty sensitive though.
