A way too fast 6 miler followed by 4 miles followed by 10 miles followed by 7 miles of fartlek. That’s a pretty spectacular four-day stretch! I did OK (12:27, 11:50, 11:36, 11:37, 12:11, 12:40, 13:01). But mostly I kept thinking about how this was the way it was SUPPOSED to feel. Like maybe the plan is working OK after all.
Today’s secret weapon was one part unflavored Tailwind, one part defizzed Coke and one part Hill Country water that was shipped to Mexico and then sent back to South Tejas for reasons that escape me totally. Rocket fuel. If rockets only travel at 5 mph.
