Noon: 13.5 miles, averaged 7:26. HR 157.
6-Mile Steady State Tempo
4 up/3.5 down. Workout was supposed to be 40' aerobic builder. I figured I would probably go about 44'-45' and do around 7 miles if I was feeling good. On the warm up I felt pretty spry, which I did not expect given how my legs felt yesterday and how they have been feeling on Saturday workouts. Got out fast and tried to ease off but as is typical I actually sped up. After that I just tried to hang on and get through at least 6 miles. I left about 2-3' and could have kept going a little bit after 6 miles, but given that it was pretty fast and the effort was higher than it was supposed to be I called it good.
Splits: 6:16, 6:11, 6:17, 6:13, 6:16, 6:13 (6:15 average)
Averaged HR was 176, so a touch high. Pleased to be working the paces back down for workouts. It has been a little while since I was running workouts in the low-6s.
PM: 4 miles w/ Megan, averaged 10:21. HR 124.
Mileage PR by 1.3 miles. Previous high was 102 September 20-26 2015 during Philadelpia Marathon training. This was pretty good without a significant long run, just consistent doubles all week of about 65'. Most of the mileage was pretty slow so it doesn't actually feel that hard. 8-10 weeks of this probably would.
