because of the travel and some other things, tonight was the first official practice i've made it to.
from what i hear, tonight was actually not terrible weather for the practice. it didn't feel too cold, and i made it out of work with plenty of time to make it to our bag drop before practice without working up a pre-run sweat.
today's workout was alternating effort levels between e2 (typically slow saturday run) and e3 (picking up the pace from there, slightly upping the pace) for 1/4 turns. i ended up running with a guy who happened to be in my mentor group and we chatted for some of the run (the parts when we weren't huffing and puffing) and before you know it we had run 5 and 1/2 miles.
i came home a little sore but i happily ate some steak and now am sleepy enough for bed.
today's mileage: 5.5
season mileage to date: 23.9
up next: XT Thursday
