PM: 17.7 miles, averaged 7:38. HR 158.
55' @ Marathon Effort + 6 x 45" Strides
Slept through the morning and lunch and finally got rolling in the afternoon. Wasn't sure I was going to make it out, but I got it done.
Warmed up 3.9 miles. Did 8.25 miles in 55' or 6:40 average. Pace was slower than expected, but also not suprising. Effort felt about right for how I usually go an 8-mile tempo. HR was a bit over marathon effort. Took a 5' plod and did the strides. Those felt decent. Slow to start, faster to finish. Cooled down about 30'.
