AM - 10 miles on mural, 6:04 pace. felt really good; wasn't blowing the door off the hinges the last few miles like i tend to at mural but was strong throughout. very muddy run.
was reading a book by brad hudson yesterday where he wrote that a marathon runner doing a bunch of 400m repeats for a workout is as useful as a 400m sprinter doing a 20-mile training run for endurance. i respect him as a coach(i wouldn't have been reading his book otherwise), but i still thought that was a really stupid take. while you're likely running much faster than you'd run in a marathon, it still helps to reinforce good form and mechanics, which is vital in a long race. if he had just said it wasn't an efficient workout for a marathoner i'd have no problem with it, but it's the sprinter analogy that annoys me. not like i could write a book any better, though.
PM - 6 on mural, 6:16 pace. have 1-4pm off from work today, so as soon as my long break started i got the rest of my miles in. since it was only about 6 hours recovery since the last run and i spent a majority of it on my feet, wasn't running with much spunk. with that being said, honestly surprised it was that quick. i'll credit the storm hitting later today for making it 70's and windy out, which did me a lot more favors than the normal 1pm weather down here.
