I ran for just over 3 hours this morning, my longest run since spring. 16.55 miles, because the route ended up being about a half-mile longer than I thought.
I eked out a 10:59 pace, which isn't great, but I thought I was even slower than that. I felt very slow.
My feet were definitely hurting by the last few miles, which is a bit odd given that my shoes are almost brand new but they're the same model I've been wearing for several years now. Oh well. Maybe a nap will help.

Weird about the shoes; but maybe you've just been on your feet a ton this week? Good job on the run! A nap helps everything!
The nap helped a lot of things, but not my feet.
I don't know what is up with them. It's the same socks and shoes as I always wear and nothing weird or different about my route. I've had some trouble before with the balls of my feet (the more round part on the side of the arch/big toe) developing callouses, but today it's the outer part (toward the little toes) of the ball that's hurting.
Your pace was much better than mine, I took 4 hours to do a tad less distance.
What shoes are you wearing?
Upper body work out with the trainer this morning. Seeing progress on getting stronger, feels good. Should have done some cardio but I miscalculated the time it was going to take to get to DS1's baseball game and there wasn't time between the trainer and when we needed to leave.
Getting stronger is good.
Strength training is good. You'll get more cardio in tomorrow, I suspect.
Longest run I have done since Missoula! 16.2 miles. Hilly, too. I was happy about the shade on the way out until I remembered that it would be sunny on the way back. But a good run, 60 when I left, 83 when I got back to my car. It got hotter.
Had a short chat with a guy who was running a sale from his yard -- 20 snowboards. He said he was selling them because he has had double knee replacement surgery and doesn't expect to snowboard any more. Is there really that much difference between snowboards that one would need 20 of them? Or just "saw it, liked it, bought it"?
I was very happy to get this run done, I have a marathon 5 weeks tomorrow.
Sorry about the continued heat.
Makes it hard to find use for a snowboard or 20.
Mammoth should be open later this month.
Maybe the guy follows the bike rule of n+1
10 mile race this morning and then watched my friend run her first BQ at the marathon
1 week until Chicago!
Congratulations to you and your friend -- good luck at Chicago!
Awesome! Congrats to your friend!

90 min of Sychro this morning, followed by 120 min of putting up the sukkah. Lots of fun. So happy the sukkah is up. Our former housemate came to help, and it was great to see him.
Work is doing a wellness challenge where we get "points" for doing things outside and posting about it on an app. So I got an underwater photo at Synchro this morning (we use an outdoor pool) and one of us doing the sukkah, and scored some points!
Now to study for my first Kinesiology exam!
Sounds like a great day.
2.4 this morning before early service. I didn't have time for anything more.

Woohoo! That sounds like a gorgeous place to ride.
Colonoscopy prep =/= fun weekend.
Not sure which is worse, the mac dying or the prep. Sorry.
Glad you got to do the loop. Snow on the peaks? Already?

Yes - it can happen at any time of the year; but we had a cold front last week and it was rainy, and so it snowed on the peaks.
Baked three double batches of cookies for tomorrow's newcomers welcome at church. Including Bitch Crack Peanut Butter Cookies which I have been making since Curlygirl posted the recipe in about 2004. Yum. I made them small and put a chocolate kiss on each one.
Pulled a bunch of books out of the Little Free Library and refreshed it with ones that have been donated in the past month and for which there wasn't space before. I think we'll be rotating on a monthly basis -- if it hasn't moved in a month, it gets pulled out and a different book put in. I'll rotate some of them back in down the road. I have three big totes full of books so we have plenty!
And the usual -- laundry, cleaning, homework.
Are many people borrowing books from the library? I think it's a great idea, a couple of people are doing that over here too.
You sound very busy as usual.
Yes, we are seeing a reasonable amount of activity already, and I think as more people get to know about it we will see more use. Neighborhood reaction has been overwhelmingly positive.
