A week and a half of no serious runs and too many catered lunches took its toll: I've gained weight and my run today (6.5 miles) was a painful slog. Hard to believe that I ran 8 miles at the same pace I did today with no ill effects! Just goes to show you: you use it or you lose it. Here's hoping I can stick to my training routine next week in Orlando (I'm there for ASTD) and avoid the worst of the buffets. I'm counting on y'all to keep me honest!
