So, I was worried about how this run would go. Heck, I even thought it might not BE, worried as I was about my ankle yesterday. Started off doing some running with Monica Y. who was looking to get five miles in. Molly the the Hound was in a great mood, too--enjoying the sunshine. Ankle felt fantastic and all the swelling is gone. I'll take that!
After that, I did one more warm-up mile on my own. Then I decided I did, indeed, feel good enough for my threshold run! I was shooting for ~6:45/mile for six miles. The first two miles were a touch too slow--6:50 and 6:50, but I caught my rhythm at mile three and the pace started dropping: 6:44, 6:44, 6:43, and my last mile was my best at 6:29.9! This is easily the best LT run I've ever had. It was both my fasted and my longest. Target was 80-88% HRR, and I hit right around 86%.
The wind was brutal, but it's hard to beat running through sunset! Now to do some serious eating, then rest up for John Bryan State Park in the morning with Rob H. and Jen B. and Monica Y. Monica's crazy enough to join us out there, turns out :-).
