Nice morning. Low-60s with about 100% humidity, but with the cool temps it wasn't a big deal. A light cross wind that didn't really impact me. I felt really, really good. Although MP is still an awkward feeling for me. It's right at the pace where I want to get up on my toes, but I've been teaching myself to run it more midfoot. I don't think my calves will handle 26 miles of forefoot strikes. Also MP is low enough intensity that I tend to relax too much to the point that suddenly I'm running 6:00 pace. Effort-wise it doesn't feel much different.

But enough rambling. Everything felt great this morning.
