Still at the hotel, this time very early in the morning since I woke up around 4:30am and knew I wasn't going back to sleep.
So off to the treadmill I go (it's too hot here to run outside, just like home) and again it's hot in the room but nobody's around so the shirt comes off. And I ran 6.55 miles in, wait for it, 7:20 a mile. It felt good, the fitness is good, the ankle is good, and the shin splints are nowhere to be seen or felt.
I'm starting to get optimistic after my vacation time off.
