Training log: Week 2 begins

Sunday 11/11 Long Run: 10 miles in 1:25:08 (8:31/mi)

First run with the new shoes, and they were great. Stable and no break-in period needed. Boy, shoes have come a long way.

The 10 mile route is pretty exact. We mapped it out yesterday in the car and it also intersects with my 10k route that I run frequently.

My 10 mile pace is a bit quicker than I had thought, but I am not too worried about it because I stayed below tempo the whole time, according to the "talk test." I felt really good too, and had plenty of reserve in the tank when I finished.

I'm sore again, but mostly in the quads and calves. I figured that I haven't run 10 miles all at once in twenty years, so a bit of soreness is to be expected!
