20 miles at the track  2:39:51  7:59:55 pace.  Not often I do a 20 miles where the average pace is sub 8, so I didn't round this up.

I ran the last 8 miles pretty hard.  My goal was to run the first 5 around 8:45ish, next five would be a progresstion to 8:00 and then I would continue a progression over the next 10 reducing each mile by 5 seconds so my las mile would be 7:10.

Didn't happen, once I hit about 7:35 I couldn't go faster.  I had to work very hard to maintain that pace to the end.  The last 5 of this run was very much like a race, I had to focus, relax, push and "mantra" my way over those last miles.  One heck of a workout for sure.

4th 20 miler in this training cycle.

Beautiful day today, the news said 60° today, it was probably 50° when I ran between 9-11:30am.  Rain prior to my run.
