10 very easy in the morning. Earlier than usual because I have an interview at the hospital later this morning.

5 a little quicker in the afternoon w/ strides.

Got an offer to work full-time! Gonna be very busy in a couple months being a full-time engineering student/getting ready for med school/working 36 hours a week. Hopefully I'll find a way to fit in running there too.

How are you feeling today after your long run yesterday?

Normally the name of the game the day after these long runs is just survive the runs without hurting anything so the recovery process can keep doing it's thing.

Congrats on the full-time offer!

Per your above comment: For recovery days I have learned (as I have gotten older but it applies to younger people as well) go as slow as you want/need to on recovery days. Most people will not be able to be guilty of running too slow. The Kenyan Jog is a real thing. They sometimes run incredibly slow. HR is generally a good indicator if you run with that, which it looks like from Strava you do.

I totally agree Jason; I get super competitive with myself when I can see my pace so I had to turn both my data screens to distance only so I'd be able to run as easy as I need to. I even had to turn off my alert for when my heart rate is "too low" on a run because I have that going off all the time.
