7 miles easy

I ran 7 miles around the Woodlands after work on Thursday in 50:30 and averaged just under 7:15 pace. The run wasn't too eventful though the hamburger in my stomach from lunch was sloshing around the last 3 miles and I was hoping I wouldn't have to make a pit stop in the woods before I finished, but fortunately I made it back with no problems. My hamstring had felt kind of tight in the morning after Wednesday's tempo run but it didn't bother me at all during the run. I spent some extra time stretching, using the foam roller and doing some gentle strengthening exercises after the run.

On a sad note, it appears that they have changed the toilet paper brand in our bathrooms at work. The new toilet paper rolls are definitely narrower than the old ones and they also seem to be a little thinner. It's still 2-ply and reasonably soft, but it definitely seems to be a step down in quality and I don't like it as much. I guess everyone's looking to cut custs where they can these days.
