|Notes||I was not "feeling" it before I got out the door this morning. As a result, I figured I was in for a slow slog of just "getting it done". Imagine my surprise that this turned out to be a real quality run.|
Feeling like I did, I let the first mile just happen whatever the pace ended up being would be fine then I would assess and adjust from there. I think it ended up being 9:00. From there, I figured I wasn't going to push the next mile either but wanted it a bit faster. I targeted 8:49. After that I reassessed and decided to try finishing the run, 8:37/8:25/8:13. This forced me to stay engaged and focused to manage my splits. It worked!
Rest day tomorrow on Easter Sunday.
