9/19: 16 Miles FAST!

I ran a killer workout today(one of the final key prep workouts for Chicago), running 16 Miles at race pace effort averaging faster than I have ever run. I started off conservative in 6:00 for the first mile but quickly dropped the pace to 540s most of the way, and it felt good, very good! I learned today that I am fit and ready to roll. The mile markers weren't totally accurate so some are probably faster(a couple 530s there) than they actually are but some are also slower than what they should be. Overall I estimated I averaged around 5:45s most of the way. This definitely felt very close to race pace effort.

Splits:

6:00, 5:40, 5:45, 5:47, 5:45, 5:42, 5:52, 5:49, 5:48, 5:53, 5:38, 5:42, 5:35, 5:45, 5:40, 5:50

~2:30:00 Pace.
