Thirteen miles in the middle of the week? That wasn't such a good idea, but it's what the schedule called for. I didn't sleep as much as I should have the night before and struggled as a result. I was able to hang on and have a few good miles at the end, but it wasn't my best effort. I should have been more focused on pace and accomplishing the goal of the run.
The first mile was over 9:00 and the average pace was 8:30. I'm hoping these mid-week medium long runs make the difference in December. The company was great. The weather was humid, but not too bad, and the run was tough.
