Even though I ran yesterday to makeup missing my run Thursday I did my long run today. It will give me two day off from running and time to recover.
I decided to run from Lowes to Cool Beans as I know it is a little over 4 miles and I planned to run 8 miles continuing adding 1 mile each long run.
I ran at an easy pace for two miles then stayed around a 10 pace for the next two. At the halfway point I started going a little faster until I slowed down midway thru Mile 5 to drink water and down an gel pack. I reached 6 miles right around 60 minutes and decided to push the final 2 miles. I finished in 1:17:44.
