Daily Note

Nice good hard long effort. On ballona creek. It was surprisingly hot today. Got out at 9 which was probably a little late, by the back half I was starting to feel dehydrated. Nevertheless, he persisted. Did a 3 mile warm up into 5x 2 miles, with .5 jog in usually 3:45. Took a little extra rest after #4 to get some water to prevent peeing brown. Finished with 4x:30 (:30). Felt really good on this. Really trying to focus on running easy and staying relaxed at harder paces. Just trusting my body, not forcing the pace, letting it come as it will. Good one overall. Splits went: 5:44-43, 5:39-42, 5:38-39, 5:37-31, 5:35-36.

Wrapped up Buddenbrooks yesterday. What a wonderful book. Such a sad story with such beautiful language.
