It was a warm weather evening run, just trying to get some mileage under my feet at no particular pace. This was my longest minimalist shoe run and second longest training run in preparation for the Half Marathon. Miles 6.5 through 8 featured tightening of a front calf muscle requiring slowing and stretching to unglue and relax the spasming muscle. It helped, and it worked.
By feel, I think this was the right distance and pace for my last training cycle before the 13.1 mile race two weeks from now.
May your training renew you.
