After yesterday's fiasco of a run, I felt really good afterwards. Probably just from ending up running few mile. I got to make sure to keep my pace tomorrow at marathon pace and not a strength run pace like I did last week. Trying to conserve a little bit of energy for the Rock and Roll half on Sunday. I'm not going to alter my week's training much (calls for 10 Saturday, and 8 Sunday, so I'll fix it to 8 Saturday and 13 Sunday). Probably talk more about it later, but I plan on hanging out with the 1:30 pace group for about half the race and then decide if I want to go for broke for the other half or just chill.
Speaking of Sunday, my building posted this sign in our elevator yesterday:

D. Day of choice? Saturday! Day of the week we actually attempt to do social things! Although I love Sundays for the long run.
