A week out from the Brooklyn Half I did eight miles at a 10:42 clip, about 30 seconds faster than my long run training pace, it was hotter than it’s been yet, the whole exercise knocked me out even though it was shorter than the last six weeks for a long run. All of which is to say, I was tired and hungry by the time I got home, swallowed brie on baguette from the night before, got into bed and took a nap.
