First 10k a.m. humpday run of October 2018. Today was ran at a slow and steady pace. My pace was slower than normal. Around a 9.45 min/mile compared to my 9.30. I’m not sure how to change that. I have 17 days until state #38 and #39. I’m in the getting ready and preparing mode. Mileage count. What I put into my mouth counts. How I put in the miles count. Appreciating , for now cool fall weather and lack of multiple layers.
