My goal right now is to ease back in after dealing with the Achilles issues. I would rather be undertrained and healthy than injured, so even though I really wanted seven+ yesterday I went for six. Cruised, though my first two miles were much faster than I planned. I need to work on consistent pacing. I say that now, but I know that "pacing" during the Honu will probably be more like "Bataan Death March" after mile five or six. That's ok, this is supposed to hurt.
I left the house later than normal, but that was ok because it meant the weather was cooler and I got to see this.
