Mid-week long run went very well, though I did all 16 miles on a treadmill. This was clearly made possible by the fact that I (we) as teachers were pretty much pushed out the door from campus due to inclement weather. Pretty blue-collar to say the least. Outside temps got down to 28 degrees.
Miles 1 – 8 were done at an easy 7:41 per mile pace. The second half was much faster, which was done at 7:13 per mile pace. I increased the graded incline by 3% every half mile from 8 to 13.5.
Total miles today: 16
