Another double update. Friday I got in 7 miles at an 8:40/mile pace. Wanted to get in a little something to tire my legs before my long run the following day.
Saturday I got in 22 strong miles. Finished with a 9:02/mile pace with plenty left in the tank. 100% confident I could have went 4 more miles and got under 9:00 per. Words can't express the confidence this gives me going into my marathon. Now I just need to stay healthy with just one more 20 miler left in my training. I'm starting to see the finish line. BMR CMO Ed ran the last 8 miles with me... I credit him with hyping me up to finish strong... Last 3 miles were at a sub 7 min pace!
