Reason for Run: The medium-long run boosts weekly mileage and helps maintain endurance. Usually, the pace is faster than the pace for a long run.
How did I feel? Generally good. I took it easy and felt in control. I had no inclination or desire to push the pace. I didn’t feel that good but my legs felt better and more refreshed. It was only two days ago that I ran 20 miles. I don’t want to wreck my legs two weeks before a half marathon and almost two months before the big race. It was warm and the humidity was high but I think my body is getting used to the weather conditions. I don’t feel as bothered although you’re never comfortable with the temperature and humidity that high.
