Today’s run was in my usual 2 part fashion
6.5 mile runch in 55:30 for an average pace of 8:33
7.5 miles in I lost track of time because I reset the treadmill twice but I know I was switching between 8 min and 8:16 minute miles with a cool down and a 3 walk breaks. My guess that the average pace was around 8:30 when all was sad and done.
I’m attempting some last-minute speed work before the RnR Providence half. I’m also praying to the weather gods that it be a cool and dry morning. After two races of PRs and no recent speed training I don’t foresee a PR this month after all not every race is a PR and that’s okay.
I did love today’s Runner’s World Quote email:
Experience has taught me how important it is to just keep going, focusing on running fast and relaxed. Eventually it passes and the flow returns. It’s part of racing.
