Today marks the beginning of increasing my most mileage in a single to a lifetime record every 2 weeks. This morning: 16 miles. I made the mistake of spending too much time in the sun yesterday afternoon (got a touch sunburned) and didn't eat a good dinner, because it was a rest day and I wasn't particularly hungry. It is my hypothesis that those things combined made the last 4 miles difficult, but it was still a good run and my overall average pace better than my 15 mile run a week ago, even though the paces were kind of flipped as I slowed down (let myself relax as my body seemed to need it) for the last 4 or so miles. It was pretty warm, too. I stopped to refill my lemonade from a stash in the car at mile 13 and it was still cold! So refreshing!
