Yesterday a planned rest day, but legs still feeling the 36 miles over the weekend a little. With that in mind, I felt it was important to do a tempo run on somewhat tired legs. Nothing crazy, but enough to give the legs a bit of a kick in the buttocks before the taper really begins.
Went well. Warmed up for a mile, nailed down five miles at 6:39/mile then cooled down for a little less than two miles.
First set of uphills felt a little tough but once warmed up the subsequent uphills felt progressively easier, which was a good sign. Great running weather as well. Bit breezy, but other than that, perfect.
Still working out my Boston goals and trying to be realistic.
Ran 6.0 miles @ 6:48/mile pace (includes w/u)
c/d: Ran 1.7 miles @ 8:03/mile pace.
Mid to upper 40s, sunny, breezy.
Saucony Virrata, shorts, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt.
