Sweet Sixteen

Ran 16.0 miles @ 7:38/mile pace. Includes 5 miles @ 6:57/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Temps in mid-20s, breezy.

Good run today. First two miles were with the co-workers getting into running at just under a 8:56/mile pace. After that, set off north on Rt. 109 and gradually worked my pace down to marathon pace for the tenth mile. Splits for the MP segment were as follows:

Mile 10: 6:58
Mile 11: 7:07
Mile 12: 7:02
Mile 13: 6:52
Mile 14: 6:44

Ran the last two miles as a cool down. All in all felt good. Muscles were fresh still from not running much over the weekend while I was sick. Feels good to have beaten them down into submission a little over the past two days.

Will likely do my runs at an easy pace tomorrow, Friday and Saturday, so I can be ready for the big run on Sunday.

26 miles for the past 2 days, including some good MP and progression segments sounds like great foundational training to me.
Keep it up.
