6.1 miles in 1:04:12 @ 10:31 pace and 163/177 bpm for 895 calories

Today was my long run of the week.  I’m increasing the target length of my long run by 10% every week as usual, but starting from scratch in January and those few weeks I missed in February set me back, and this was the first real run longer than an hour in quite a while. Still, beautiful early evening weather in Dallas and my first break from a long work day made it really nice. My right calf tightened up a bit at the end and it still has a small sore spot I can’t seem to massage out, but other than that I did fine. I took it easy for the entire run (as evidenced from the average heart rate) and the day off yesterday helped me recover well from Sunday’s race.
