Long run on the marathon training loop.
11 mile warm up @ 7:00 pace... ended up catching the 7 min guy right at the 11 mile mark. Spent the first 4 miles or so in a daze. Kind of seeing stars and almost blacking out. I must have been somewhat out of it. Becaue earlier I scared the shiz out of myself and thought I saw the white lady sitting there looking at me... truely was scared stiff. Oh boy... lol
Only took one Gu and drink at mile 8. It was 80 F and very humid. I was a sweaty pig early and often. And eventually started to cramp up even with the salt pills I'd taken before the run.
10 mile tempo at 5:48 avg or in 58:14
After the 11 mile warm up I wanted to hit some kind of tempo/ workout. Even though I felt trashed. Quads were even sore from the run yesterday out on Utah Hill. I thought I'd just run as hard and smooth as I could to finish off the last 10 miles of a 21 mlie run. Started to die at around mile 6 and hit a 5:55 there. Thought about pulling the plug but pressed on. Hit mile 7 at 5:42 and got some confidence back to finish under a 5:50 avg.
Not a crazy awesome workout but fairly solid with the hot temps and longer run yesterday. Glad to get through the whole thing without wussing out. :)
.10 cool down back over to the car
