Didn't plan this one, but I guess sometimes whatever runs can produce some interesting results. South Side - 11.5 miles, averaged 6:38
I have no idea what to call this run other than a "block tempo" or "marathon paced fatigue tempo." Started one mile easy-steady (7:22), then 6-mile LT progressive tempo (6:39, 6:31, 6:15, 6:15, 6:07, 6:05), then coasted into 4-mile MP tempo (7:07, 6:51, 6:52, 6:38 w/ a quarter mile of downhill on the last one), then .5 miles at 7:12
At mile 10 I was 4-5 seconds average from my half PR. I think McMillan is conservative for my half marathon pace (about 6:25) at this point.
LT tempo average 6:18.5
MP tempo average 6:52
