It’s been a while since I’ve been able to slip out of the office for a midday run. So today was a bonus. It doesn’t hurt any that fall temperatures around lunchtime were AWESOME, either!
I went for 7 on the W&OD…mile warmup, then 5 at tempo and finally a cooldown mile. Check out those splits for the 5. I was locked in, all right.
This will be a heavy week for me, culminating with a massive number of miles while coaching at Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday. That will end the Team in Training cycle and my fall coaching commitment with TNT. It will also begin my taper towards Outer Banks and the half marathon on 11/9. Just like that, the peak of the fall running season is here. And I feel very ready.
