wanted to do a long run of 8 or so today. Amanda was running an 8 miler too...I think she wanted to run together but I wanted to speed it up a bit. Amanda was running the sligo loop so I decided to run it in reverse.
My plan was to run reverse at a good pace until I met with Amanda, (I figured 5 or 6 miles) then turn and run with Amanda for 5 or 6 miles at a easier pace, thus pulling off a 10 or 12 miler.
I met Amanda at mile six, finished off with a decent kick. Amanda was surprised to see me! I turned and ran 6 miles back to the start.
The first 6 miles my pace was 8:02 and a kick of 6:57. The final 6 miles @ 8:48 pace and a good speedup to kick of 6:33 pace.Very tiring but satisfiying run.
Overal pace 8:22 for the whole run.
