Wanted to take it easy today, being my first day back running in like two weeks and all. Apparently 9:40 miles are "easy" to me now. All I did was go out to Mopac since it's the only trail Lincoln decided needed mile markers within a 10-mile radius of our house. I clicked on my watch when I passed the first mile marker thing right at the beginning of the trail and just focused on not over-striding and heel-striking, keeping my breathing on a 3-step cadence, and keeping my head and eyes up. When I hit 9:33 for the first mile [which is mostly uphill] I didn't know what to think. I mean it was "comfortably hard" if there ever were such a thing, so I dunno. On my long runs during marathon training my pace for this kind of day would be like 10:30 or higher. I guess I'll just go with it for now!

What a wonderful way to cap off this month's swimming challenge! I simply can't believe those first-set numbers. I'd like to know how I would have done if I didn't have to switch lanes. Something was just... I dunno, different after I changed lanes. Didn't really feel like I was in a rhythm or anything. The first set though, what a joy. I think that's what the guy on EndurancePlanet was talking about with simply getting lost in enjoying the activity [and I heard that AFTER the workout]. Well that's it. 10 miles in October! I'm glad that's over.

Average swim today. One of those goofy ones where I kept stopping. Chuck is on TV so that's all. Bye.

Nice little swim before church today. Churned the arms for all they were worth on the last lap, seemingly was swimming right up out of the water! Felt pretty good today. Hit lap 15 and it didn't even really register. If I wasn't concerned about time constraints I could have done a mile no problemo. Guess rest really does work!
