7 miles before work on tired legs (9:42/mi).  Legs were tired from strength training a couple days ago and my sense of exertion has increased since quitting my anti-d med.  Will take some time getting use to the feelings again.

11.5 miles in the morning (8:49/mi).  I haven't felt this good on a run in a very long time.  Like years.  Probably related to stopping Lex. Feeling a bit more determined and getting a "runner's high" again.

8 miles in the morning before church (8:48/mi).  I can't believe how good running feels now.  It has to be related to me stopping my medication.

Strength training and swimming with the kids later in the day.  Tired!

5.7 miles on a hot humid morning post blood donation the day before = SLUG FEST!  Had to walk some sections.  Brutal.  Going to eat and drink next couple of days and that's about it.
