Another Friday long run mostly down Provo Canyon on the river trial but with a little uphill backtracking around miles 8-10. Felt pretty good for 13-15 miles, probably went out a little too fast but couldn't seem to get myself to slow down. I would think I was slowing down but garmin said pace stayed the same - in the 7:30-8:00 range.
We started this run later in the morning (around 9:15) and paid the price later in the run coming out of the canyon as temps got into the 80's and I majorly hit the wall and had to majorly death-march my way to 20 miles. I was hoping for 22-23 miles but I was entirely done for at 20. Actually I was done for at around 18 but I knew I had to get at least to 20 so I hobbled it in.
Nice to get the last 20+ run out of the way! Looking forward to TAPER TIME!!
