AM- Treadmill BW- 3 mile warm up, then tinman tempo- started at 6:07 pace, then slowly increased pace to 6:00 by mile 5, 5:53 by mile 9. Felt great today. During BW, I normally feel ok yet am working hard, but today it felt easy. When I finished the run, there wasn’t even any sweat that had dripped on the treadmill. In fact, the faster I went, the better I felt. 5:50 pace felt easier than 6:05 pace. Decided to add an extra mile to end of tempo with rapidly increasing pace, finishing at 5:00 pace for the last 200 yards, still feeling great. I wanted to keep going but knew I should be cautious. 2 mile cooldown. 16 miles total in about 1:42, with 11 tempo in about 66 min. Good start to the week.
Lunch- 7 more. Tired and sore now- feels like I almost ran a marathon. 3 hrs between runs is never enough.
