20.45 miles including intervals before work
Left poor Tess at home looking upset and dejected, sorry girl but this is no run for a barefoot runner, oops i mean bare paw runner!
headed out early onto the roads and ran 7 miles to the club session. we did some drills then hammered out 8 x about 800m. 13 miles were showing on the Garmin by the end of the workout, so I added some extra hill loops on the way home, i finished off with marius Bakken's smart strides, running each one faster than the last.
I was almost home with 19.5 miles so i decided to finish off with a half mile loop near home at marathon pace, kicking into it I went straight past my target pace, I felt fantastic, i was floating along and i didn't want to stop.
But work called, so I finished off at 20.45 miles
