Lately, Matt is the rabbit and I am the dog. He simply destroyed me on Wednesday's run. I know very well what the back of his shirt looked like. (At least I was able to keep him in sight!) The 15th mile was 6:38. Our average was 7:42, and if you take out the first warm up mile (9:00), the average pace for 14 was 7:36.
That's a pretty hard effort to give less than 24 hours after doing a VO2 workout at "cookie tossing" pace.
Next is a couple of easy days to get ready for another hard long run this weekend.
