Saturday Morning Long Run
Praise be to the Lord! I threw down this morning. I ran a super strong, perhaps the strongest of my life, 15 miler this morning. I was really intentional about keeping my two 10 milers yesterday easy so that I would have the legs for a strong 15 mile tempo this morning - it certainly paid off. My legs felt beefy and strong. I put in the middle 12 miles of the tempo at 6:15 or faster pace. Super clean, super smooth. Everything came together this morning, my previous day's training, nutrition, coffee buzz, new shoes, mental toughness, weather, spiritual peace. It was glorious. This afternoon I will take a nice and easy cruise around town to loosen up the legs and finish off my miles for the week. Peace.
