Long run of just over 21 miles with Sasha and Jeff today, It was supposed to be a nice and easy 15! Oh well it was fun and we were feeling good and so decided to go longer while Sasha suggested we throw in some faster stuff to mix things up. What the heck.. I'm feeling better today I thought to myself so I guess I'm game. The faster sections turned out to be around 5:20 pace and then with longer intervals at around six minute pace at the end of the run. These early morning runs can be a little draining, particularly as they come at the end of my day just as everyone else is starting theirs.
All in all it was fun and with no significant fuel issues this time but there is still some work to be done however. The really good news is that I am starting to bounce back now from the higher volume/intensity weeks that I undertook earlier. I'll just have to keep the daily runs nice and slow no matter how awkward they feel while managing the harder days in less frequent and in more incremental steps. Maybe jog later for a bit. Out..
