AM group run: the pace was as advertised on Facebook, even with the fast guys.  10.2 miles - 1:10:18 (according to another guys watch).  I didn't wear a watch this morning since I woke about 20 minutes before the run with 10 minutes drive to get there :) 

It was encouraging to run this pace after a long run day yesterday.  Under 7 minute pace felt easy/conversational today... :)

Plus - these guys are incredible resources: One of the guys is an IM guy (3 total) who is my age with a sub 10 hr Louisville IM under his belt, another is the winner of the CR run series from last year and an exceptional tri guy also, and the last is a 2:30 marathon / sub 15:00 5k guy.

AM Long Run: 55 degrees today and partly cloudy

20 miles - 2:43:43 - easy pace, a little painful when I got hungry at the end of the run, but a good first 20 mile LSD for the cycle...
