PM: 8 more miles on the beach- did the 1st 4 in just over 8min pace...little slower on the way back in the 95 degree heat.

Achilles is improving.  The beach running seems to help.

AM: Did my standard run w/my wife on the beach this morning and she decided to go an extra 3, so despite the 95 degree weather, I figured I'd join her the full distance. Jumped in the ocean 2x and ran the last mile around 7:30ish pace.

PM:  Ran 7 miles on the beach @ just under a 9min pace.
