No running today after my long/hard run yesterday but I thought I should report in. I was pretty sore yesterday evening but supprisingly feel pretty good this morning. I scheduled not to run today and will pick it back up tomorrow. This whole week is an easyier week (except for yesterday). Next week I jump back to 70+ and then begin to taper down to the big race.
I really think I could have run an entire marathon at the paced I ran yesterday. The progressive effort seems to work best for me. If I just add a mile to each segment, making them 6 miles instead of 5 and then kick hard for 4 miles instead of 2 I should come close to a 3:12 marathon...way faster than my actual goal. :-)
