*This run is still on the slow side; I am hoping as time proceeds, my legs will adjust to the high miles. Though some of this is clearly mental, I cannot help but note some fatigue in my legs. In the end, I hope to push this tempo run time down to 6:30 before I race Boston. And, maybe my legs will not be as tired once I hit a few more weeks. Too early to panic.
