I had 9 miles with 7 at tempo to do. I told myself to see how I felt and do as much as I could no pressure. There was some intense wind but it was at my back on the way out. On the way back it was painful but gave me a much more intense workout (and motivation to get home sooner since it was freezing!) I'm happy to report I hit my goal pace for every mile but 1!!! The only reason I think the 1 mile was off (and by 6 seconds average) was because I stopped for water and garmy took awhile to get back to normal pacing.
I'm sore today after doing arm weights for the first time in weeks and my legs are tired (but good tired). I'll be taking it easy before this training cycle's first 20 mile run tomorrow.
