“Town Lake” long run

We did the standard Town Lake 10 mile run today. I ran with Ed Burgess, Kevin, Todd, and Jim. Good company and good talk. We started off real slowly. Near the end Ed sped up and I had troubles keeping up with him. But I pushed ahead and finished. You can see the speed up in my heart rate. You can also see the three water stops at 2 miles, 5 miles and 7 miles (those are the dips). I definitely felt better than the day before, but I was still exhausted by the end. I guzzled down a quart of Gatorade Rain and then some water. Oh yeah, my ankle was OK today. I barely felt it. Afterward I went to Barton Springs, paid my $3 for parking and stood in the cool water for about 20 minutes. I think it helped my recovery.
