Ran 4.0 miles @ 7:40/mile pace.
I did my own little workout before XC practice got started. I meant to run 5.0 miles, but I accidentally cut my route short. Probably just as well, as my pace was faster than I would have liked. Since I only have three weeks here between the ultra and the upcoming marathon, healing up is important and I need to keep that in the front of my mind more.
The good news though is my legs are feeling fine and today's run felt pretty good. I thought my pace was slower, but it wasn't. It did feel like it required a little more effort, but I'm wondering if a good part of that is simply mental.
Rest day planned for tomorrow.
