10 in the morning. Actually felt pretty good considering yesterday, got lots of sleep so that helped.

5 @ 6:30 pace with 4x200m strides thrown in at the end. Pace was a bit quicker since there was a huge storm about to roll in, darkest clouds I've ever seen. Hopefully power doesn't go out tonight because I have a test to study for tonight.

Eugene, I wanted to just make a quick suggestion on your about your long, long run fuel, because even though I have not had a ton of experience with like some people have, I have done several 20+ mile long runs and four marathons. I usually will eat some type of waffle, bread, or granola bar with some peanut butter about 45 minutes to an hour before the run, then I try to not consume anything during the long run, unless I am doing surges with it or it is around marathon pace effort. For me, it seems that if I try to avoid fueling, my body becomes adjusted to fat burning as fuel, instead of glucose and glycogen stores. But everyone is different, so take my advice with a grain of salt! Lol!
