14-miler. I haven't done much distance for a few years, so have been trying to stretch myself over the past couple of weeks in hopes of running a marathon in January. Saw 2 deer today + stepped in an ant hill while stretching- led to welts all over my right ankle, foot, and calf. Might push a couple extra miles in the evening. Hoping to shift to 50 mile weeks and press towards 60 mile weeks mid-November. 

 

5 more in the evening.

1 mile warm-up. 8 miles @ 7:24 pace, broken up 3, 2, 2, 1. Jogged the last 3 back slowly for 12 total. Achilles were sensitive in the first 3 miles, calmed down part way through, and I was just overall sore in the final couple miles.
