Last long run before the next half. I wasn't looking forward to it. It's been a long week with ridiculously high temps (90+ every day) and I was tired. I hesitate to even SAY this, I feel like it might jinx me. But. It was actually a pretty good run. I'd even be willing to say one of the best runs I have had (on a treadmill) in months. I didn't feel tired once I started and I kept raising the speed.
I haven't done over 6 miles on my "long run treadmill day" in ages. I've typically been slowing down the pace a bit. I figured that since I've certainly been slowing my outdoor long run, I need to actually work on my speed a bit, and I think it went well. One more short run before Portland!
