My feet felt like they weighed 100 pounds each and I thought about bailing, but I decided to push the pace every other mile just to see what happened. I affectionately call this workout "puking leapfrog" because I always want to barf by the end of the last fast mile.
- Overall pace was 9:08, a 3:59:59 marathon pace, and my ultimate goal.
- My second fast repeat was 8:23, exactly my BQ marathon pace.
- I had a couple recovery miles at 9:34/9:36, which is my PR marathon pace of 4:10.
- The 8:19 gets an asterisk because I had to stop for traffic.
Anyway, it was great way to kick off the weekend!
