3/22 Half Marathon Simulation

Tough workout this morning. I knew it was going to be, and didn't quite make the whole thing. Shouldn't have gone for quite such a long bike ride yesterday...

Planned:
6 miles easy (8:15)
6 miles at goal race pace (6:50)
2 miles easy

The first six miles felt great, but the moment that I kicked it up to race pace, I felt the energy draining. I held out for two miles, then backed off to the easy pace for two. Just couldn't hold it.

Actual:
6 miles easy (8:15)
2 miles at goal race pace (6:50)
2 miles easy
10 miles in 1:20
