Took a day off yesterday since my back was so sore, but it's a little better today so I forced myself to do the long run. As I warmed up the back loosened up. Missed my 10 mile run last week so was a little behind on total miles. This run was fair but on the scale an 8 when it should be a 6. Got to get my confindence up for these longer runs. Funny how it seems so impossible to run 26 at even a faster pace while in training at this point. :-)

My weight keeps going down, now it's at 151. This was a comfortable weatherwise running day for me at 62-67 degrees.

Callie is home for a couple of weeks so I got .to run with her. I really enjoy runnning with someone (especially her) as I never run with anyone else. It reminds me why I started and like to run. She got me to start running 7 years ago. I told her today she probably added 10 years to my life! I'm greatful to her for that. Wer're working on our ultimate "Bucket List" thing to do and that is to run Boston together. Hopefully we both will qualify in '18 and run it in '19 together!

This was an easy low HR recovery run for me. Nice cool, foggy, drizzling, 46 degree weather.
