Missed my “academic” post on Friday, but have put two in the pipeline for next week (M-W). Hopefully I can keep a bit of a buffer going forward.
Ran Friday night and really hammered about 2 miles at the end, forgetting I had a workout this (Saturday) morning. Ended up only doing 20mins of a planned 30min tempo, and really struggled home this morning. Overall still happy with week 1 of marathon training, but I’ll have to be better with gauging effort in the future. Will likely break out the HRM in the future.
On the plus side, blew away a segment record on my Friday run, going 5:17/mi for 1.2 miles near the end.
