Waking up the legs
I continue to feel pretty good and optimistic about MCM (Marine Corps Marathon), . Did an easy 6 miles with strides on Wednesday and then 9 miles with the middle 4 slightly faster than marathon pace yesterday. The purpose of yesterday's workout was to wake up the legs and remind them what faster pace running felt like. I ran the 4 miles slower than tempo in 23:03 (5:46, 5:49, 5:45, 5:43). The workout felt quite easy that I considered extending it to 5 or 6 miles. I was smart enough though and stopped at the planned 4 miles. An easy 6 today and 16 tomorrow wraps up a 60-mile week.
