Noon: 20.6 miles, averaged 7:21. HR 153.
The workout was supposed to be 14 miles at 40 seconds slower than marathon effort, which I assumed was just "moderate," or not quite into easy end of marathon effort but around or slightly faster than honest easy. It started about right and then I just clicked stuff off and pushed the last 4-5 miles and felt strong even in the sloppy areas of the park with mud. 3 mile warm up, then 14 miles starting at 7:26 and working down to 6:00 for the final mile, then 3.6 miles down.
Progression Portion: 7:26, 7:26, 7:11, 7:13, 7:06, 7:03, 6:56, 6:46, 6:45, 6:29, 6:24, 6:20, 6:13, 6:00
Felt quite strong today even with lots of miles in the legs and a lot of climbing yesterday afternoon/evening. I felt like I was holding back most of the workout. The last mile was fairly tough, but not a killer. HR was 173 on that one so not really working too hard.
Megan and I are headed to Ypsilanti to meet some friends. I am going to have a ridiculous burger I would imagine.
