Marathon training week 15 workout 6: ten mile pace run (9:00/mile).
What a great run!! Considering Monday’s terrible run I was nervous going into this. This would be the longest pace run as part of training. But it went really well. I left my car at work last night and ran in! Which also had me nervous as it’s a big net uphill, but I crushed it. Last mile was my fastest at 8:16, which was my mile PR in high school! (Speedy Gonzalez over here, I know). Really happy right now.
I am feeling apprehensive about tomorrow’s 20 though. The weather looks crappy for running with lots of wind. Sunday looks great which makes me think I should push it to then, but I know I’d regret that tomorrow evening…and it could be windy on race day. But I hate running in wind!
