9 miles done today. 3 loops of Lake Merritt.
My trashed legs didn’t loosen up until mile 6 when conveniently, my new iPod shuffle betrayed me and ran out of juice. SO RUDE.
I fought through the last lap and finished strongly. Felt pretty good until it occurred to me that during peak marathon training, 9 miles will be a midweek run.
And I will run TWICE what I ran today. SEVERAL TIMES.
