Running Log/Long RunDistance: 8 miles
Comments: I certainly felt the miles from yesterday on this one but I was determined to push the pace a bit more regardless.
My target was a sub-1 hour eight miler or a sub 8 min/mi average pace. Fell short on both counts but whittling off almost two minutes from yesterday's run isn't a shabby outcome either.
But it was clear over the last two miles that I didn't have much in the tank. I tried keeping the accellerator down the whole run but I kept slowing down bit by bit after about mile five.
I cranked it up to goal pace for the final three-fourths of a mile just to get a feel of it. The feeling is I got a long way to go.
