great run today for 13.25 anyways, 7:17 pace through that, right at 1:34 for 13 miles, at 13.25, had a massive side cramp and had to stop and jog the way home, I haven't had this feeling for a while, but have had it before last year, I think it's a sign of dehydration as it was warmer today but super dry >10% humidity. I think I might just have worn myself out, either way I made it home for 14.1 for a total of 7:20 avg pace if you include my jogged last mile, strides during the last .3 as much as  I could muster. beautiful fall night and the sunset was amazing, fall colors were glowing and it was neat to watch the transition to night

17 tonight, didn't feel great until about 8 miles in, so took a long time to warm up, interesting because it was only once the sun went down and it started getting cooler that I started speeding up. negative split by quite a bit, 2:02:10 total, 7:11 avg pace, was amazed at the zone I was able to get into, felt pretty good even with a high mileage week. strides after + ice bath

all time personal best set today - 72.1 miles in the last 6 days, a lil over 12 per day, new record by about a mile!
