Today was a toughie. We ventured into unchartered territory by completing 18.02 miles.
The plan was to take it easy and run at 1mm slower than race day pace. In my case that would have been 9:50mm, that went out of the window after mile one!
First 6 miles were roughly 8:50mm pace and felt good.
The second 6 miles were okay and were at 9:05mm pace so were averaging 9mm pace after 12miles. Then fatigue set in and my pace slowed to 9:30mm for the last six, very tough miles.
Next week is a 20miler. Can’t wait, honest! Lol
