4.59 miles in 45:37 @ 9:55 pace and 164/178 bpm for 699 calories

Yesterday I announced that next week I would be leaving my job to pursue other ventures.  A little bit of anxiety from that switch plus a conscious effort to cut some calories over the past few weeks have helped me drop 5 pounds. So I was happy today when I pushed the pace during a peak run and kept the pace under 10 minutes.  We’ll see how well I run after a mile swim and 25 miles of cycling.  I’ll bike and swim this week and then take some time off before Sunday morning.
