Yesterday was an easy 4 miles- legs felt pretty beat after several short tempo runs in a row.
Today was a planned 14 mile race pace workout. I did this loop a week ago, hitting 7 miles in 51 minutes and fell apart coming back with a mile to go-
This time was a different story- I hit 7 miles in just under 49 minutes, 10 miles in 69 minutes, 13.1 miles in 1:29, and 14 in 1:35, meaning I covered the last 7 miles in 46 minutes and change.
I won't lie- I still feel wasted several hours later, but I am very encouraged by this workout.
