7 miles on a very nice morning with Moxie and Curt in approximately 53 minutes. We were running nice and easy through SRL having a great conversation when we ran into Marlin about 3 miles in. Ran about 2 miles with Marlin, then he split off as we headed home. A nice friendly run. Ran in the AMPro compression socks again, I really do like them! (TSD5)
I am treating the marathon this weekend as a training run, so I won't really taper this week but may cut back a bit on Thurs/Fri.
Speedwork on a hot day at lunch. 5x0.5M intervals with 0.25M recovery after a 1.5 mile warmup. Interval paces: 5:35, 5:40, 5:45, 5:50, 5:47. First 3 were good to ok, last 2 the heat was catching up to me. Overall not too bad (not too good either) considering the 7 miles this morning as well. A total of 7 miles in 48:20. (Tangent 1)
