Dense fog this morning. My glasses kept clouding over and visibility was down to nothing. But it was cool with temps barely breaking 50 so it was good weather for a run.
Today was a quality day with 2hrs 45mins on the schedule. It went very well and turned out to be a 20 mile high aerobic workout with a 3.1 mile cooldown at the end.
Miles 1 - 5 @ 7:16 pace
Miles 6 - 10 @ 6:45 pace
Miles 11 - 15 @ 6:42 pace
Miles 16 - 20 @ 6:45 pace
Average of 6:52 for the 20 mile portion.
Then I cooled down for 3.1 miles to finish out the time at an 8:59 pace. I felt good throughout the run. Comfortable with minor periodic fatigue lows during the final 5 miles. They didn’t last long and it’s good to experience these in training as you can bank on feeling these lows in any race.
