Had a little over on five on tap today. Had hoped for a moderate pace that felt easy. Had to keep putting on the brakes and still ended up with a tempo pace that felt easy. Was feeling great, super energetic and the run effortless despite the thick humidity.
Normally not smart to run faster on the day before a race but today was short and nothing taken out of the bank. Great confidence booster mentally, as the past few days have been pretty poopy running wise. Feeling great about tomorrow.
I think the big rebound is a direct result of taking it easy the past few days and also fine tuning the diet a little, specifically getting in more iron yesterday, but that's hard to gauge.
Ran 5.4 miles @ 7:11/mile pace.
Lower to mid 70s, partly cloudy, very humid.
Brooks Mach 11, shorts, cap.
