I decided to skip deadlifts this morning and get miles; I might go upper body tomorrow and deadlift Monday. That will keep Monday’s workout a bit shorter.
So, I went 11 miles; I did my 10.7 plus an extra loop at was right at 3 hours (a few seconds under) at mile 11.
I could blame a lot of things…and in reality my first 5 and second 5 were VERY similar in pace..down to a few seconds. But it was pleasant weather..I think that I am feeling the effects of..gasp, 17 miles coming in. The good news is that the glute pain was minimal and pretty much went away in the second half, and, well, I wasn’t that tired when I finished. I actually talked myself OUT of “making it a half marathon”
