Really seemed to take a few steps up the ladder this week. Less fatigue, lighter legs and a good attitude. Good times.
15 miles, 7:14 pace
Sleep: 5.5h 4/10
Weather: 45 degrees
Notes: Easy long run over hills with Scott. Felt very good the whole way.
10 miles, 1h05m
Sleep: 7h 7/10
Weather: 44 degrees
Notes: 7 mile steady state-type run on the track. I discussed this with Mystery Coach beforehand, since I was hoping for a longer run at quicker paces to start mentally preparing for the 10K later this month. Each 1600m split has 2 seconds added to it to estimate mile paces: 5:49, 5:47, 5:48, 5:45, 5:45, 5:47, 5:45. Felt very good after 5 miles or so, much better than any run like this since the marathon.
