I hoped to get a good 16 mile run in today, but was sorely mistaken. Get it- sore-ly? Ok, sorry, bad joke.
I hoped I could get a 12 mile run in but was very, very sore still so figured I would see what happened. I looped around the island a bit, then ended up on the canal and ran it back and forth twice. My pace was 8:00-8:15/mile, and I was sore. I could feel the soreness in my legs with each step. Finally, after 8 miles, I decided to try and do the last 4 miles a bit quicker (though I was happy just to be able to run all 12 miles). I hoped to at least be sub-8:00, but I must have felt a bit better than I thought. I did the last 4 miles in 29:33, 7:22 average. Good run supposing how sore I was, and a good start to 70 miles this week (hopefully).
