Epic Sunday Run!

2 mile warmup
4x5 minutes at tempo, with 1 min rest
10 miles at marathon pace
4x5 minutes at tempo, with 1 min rest
2 mile CD

WOW. I honestly didn't think I could do this... usually my Tuesday tempo runs have 40 or so minutes of tempo in them. This workout had that PLUS 10 miles at marathon pace.

But I did it! And mostly within my target times (the last tempo pace runs were 2-3 seconds slow, I had nothing left). Hu-rah!!!

Bring on the marathon :)

(actually, first let's bring on the taper! I'm sooo excited to cut back and see how the legs feel!! Also very excited to have more time to catch up with everything I've been putting off...)
