Marathon Training Update-Sun May 24

3.5 mile warm-up, then 2.5 miles on the 800 loop in Robin Hill (15:03). I wanted to go 3 miles but miscounted the laps! Once I stopped there was no way I could go another. Here I am 4 hours later and my legs are feeling trashed. Not as hard as an actual race, however there is something to be said about these short tempo workouts. Call it a decent but not great workout (this 800 loop is short, however with a couple of short inclines and lots of turns, it certainly is slower for the same effort compared to a flat straight path or track). I could use this as a goal workout and see how far I can knock that time down. 1 mile cool down 7 miles total
