Today's run went well. The key is to keep them going well. Since the Vermont 100, I have put too much value on the runs that have gone well and took them as a sign I could ramp it up more, which ended up being too much, too soon. As a result, I haven't come along as far as I could have. Live and learn the hard way.
The deer flies can be bad along the dirt road section of this route, but they were non-existent today, despite it being muggy and the wind light. Nice.
Ran 5.6 miles @ 8:03/mile pace.
Paved and dirt roads.
Upper 60s, overcast, humid.
Shorts, short sleeved shirt.
