With a day off from running yesterday combined with decreased mileage during the taper, legs felt very fresh today. But yesterday wasn't a total day off, as I went kayaking in Casco Bay with Heather. We encountered several harbor seals at one point, and two followed us for a while.
It didn't occur me until later that this was likely an attack attempt ordered by Andrew in retaliation for me trying to convince the Puffin Army to attack him during his early morning runs. However, my plan was thwarted after I foolishly and accidentally tipped Andrew off. Worth noting that the Puffin Army has made it clear that they see me as an incompetent fool, and told me to take any future mercenary offers I might have elsewhere.
As for the run, it went well. Explored a new-to-me trail in the woods behind my house that ended up being a nice loop just a few clicks under four miles.
Ran 3.8 miles @ 9:14/mile pace.
