10. kept it mostly easy, with a few pick-ups at 6:50 to 7:00. last two miles were 6:20 and 6:18. i logged them as MP miles, as that is the eventual goal. the pace was manageable, but i have A LOT of work to do if i ever want to even consider running a full marathon at this pace.
i finally felt ready to add back in core & weights to the daily grind. probably for the best. feeling the flab.
