I was not sure how I wanted to approach today. 2 weeks till marathon so I wanted a strong workout- yet I did not want to kill myself and I have been promising my legs some rest. So early on in the week I figured I'd run all 16 at MP, but since we have 4+ days of a heat wave of 100 or near 100 temps (that I am sure will pass soon) and I am tired I thought a solid 10 mile tempo at sub MP would be good.
73/100% (I thought those days were gone)... I should have gotten up 2 hours earlier, sun was warm,oh well. 16 Miles, 10 tempo were 7:22 (hills, inclines), 7:14, 7:19, 7:23, 7:26, 7:21, 7:24, 7:27 (rolling hills), 7:26, 7:35 (steep hills). Avg 7:23. Ok I suppose.
Getting packed up and ready to travel!
