tired from 5 days (4 of which were intense) straight working out.
even those training for 26.2 only did 13 this weekend, so we decide to run the route with them. pushed it for an extra 0.1 to get an idea of time. this run was only 2 minutes slower than my PR at Columbia. hoping that means i can push it in knoxville for a brand new PR.
should have been easy-ish (hence “cruise) but the wind made me fight to keep pace in a few spots. over all though, i’m thrilled to hold a 8:30 pace fairly easily, even if it is just over a half mile.
This weekend we’re “only” doing a 10 miler. After running between 12-14 for so long, it hardly feels like a long run, which was of course the point. To make that distance seem like nothing. It’ll feel weird running for less than 2 hours this weekend.
How’s your training coming along?
