My splits were looking nicely even until Embankment, then it all got very painful.
6:22,23,22,25,22,24,23,25,25,20,22,26,23,22,22,23,23,21,23,22,27,23,31,22,52,58 last bit 7:01 I'm glad I added a two minute buffer, as I used them in the last two miles by both fading and by not accounting enough for the "Garmin factor"
How are all you VLMers adjusting to your 'free' weekend and lack of LSR?!
My long run this week is 6mi at recovery pace. Doss!
Having accomplished a mission set nearly three years ago I now feel a bit lost. I don't know whether to keep the pressure on and go for sub-2:45 next year, enter a foreign marathon, or give it all up, run for fitness and wellbeing and get out and do some boadboarding. With that stormy weather we ran through over the winter I missed swells that I probably won't see again in my lifetime.
