October 5 - six miles

Of course, the day after the stress test, I set out to do a LSD run of at least 15 miles at rockland lake. After the first 3-mile lap, however, I decided to do only two laps, because I was really feeling the impact - a clear indication that the cushioning layers of my shoes have worn out. So I ran fartleks for the second lap (it's a type of speed work, where I sprint arbitrary distances based on landmarks, eg, "I'm going to sprint to where the path curves out of sight, then easy-jog to recover.")

The total time was 75 minutes, mostly because I ran the first lap as though I were going to do 15-18 miles total.
