really good run this afternoon, hit every mile between 6:53 and 7:10, not a huge spread, the pace felt extraordinarily easy and my heart rate was super steady according to the garmin report, a nice benchmark for my fitness so far this year - probably taking tomorrow off to give my hernia area a break - i can feel it this week, probably because of the jump in mileage after the illness - good week on 5 days though - almost equal to last week in 6

good long run today, 14.1 in 1:38:36, 7:00 avg pace, cold start to the run but about mile 8 it started dumping snow, made the last part of the run a little tough cuz snow in the eyes, normally snow is peaceful to run it, but it was really coming down hard tonight, good run for the conditions, solid fitness at this point despite the challenges in getting mileage in + strides after
