We had a four mile warm up then four miles at tempo pace followed by a cool down....
I was wearing some new shoes (which I will blog about later) and was feeling pretty springy, even during the warmup. Wasnt sure how fast i was going to run. I just lined up behind the sub 3-hour marathoners and tried to keep up without blowing out a leg or a lung.
Mile 1 - 6:22 --- probably a little too fast
Mile 2 - 6:33 -- This is comfortably hard
Mile 3 - 6:34 -- Staying on pace
Mile 4 - 6:36 -- Glad its done
I've got the Texas Independence Relay in two days, so hopefully I recover by then. I'm running four legs and about 20 miles over Saturday and Sunday.
