weight after run - 132.8 lbs

Late morning run. Started faster than usual, and felt good until around mile 3, where a long hill begins. Lost 3.2 lbs of water weight.

Overall, my effort was steady, though apparently my speed was not. I do not know what to attribute to the hill, and what falls under an unfocused effort, but a :30 difference is not what I am willing to settle for.

Bits of Trivia
  • This was the fastest so far I have run this loop, dropping 43 seconds.
  • I passed the 250 mile mark during this run, having now run 254.56 miles since May 3.
