Well, I am holding steady at being three workouts behind. Today, I did 6 “easy” miles and averaged a 12:06 pace, which is closer to the recommended pace for a 4:45 marathon than 5:00. As a bonus, I threw some hills into the route and managed to gain 568 feet of elevation (according to my watch). That’s something different!
Tomorrow I will either make up Thursday’s tempo run or do the prescribed 15 mile long run. The weather is looking lovely for the afternoon, but I’m not sure I’ll be feeling like 15 miles. Then again, I might prefer 15 slower miles to 8 faster ones. Decisions, decisions!
Something that made today great: I had a mostly lazy day with Richard!
Time I woke up: 10:24 am
