This was another workout I've been sort of intimidated by all week because my legs are tired and half marathon pace is even faster than marathon pace, but it turns out that after 61 miles in 7 days, if you think "10K pace!," you can just manage to eek out HM pace.
I am nothing if not consistent.
I was still a good quarter mile from home after the prescribed 2.5 cool down, so I kept running & made it a nice round 13.5 for the day.
Also, I think this might be the longest tempo/threshold/whatever workout (including the warm/up cool down) that I've ever done in my life.
Healdsburg 2012. Memories! Look how young & fresh-faced we were!
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have go put myself to bed before I pass out on the couch.
