14.01 miles run / 2:03 / 8:47 pace
Notes: Ran on the road and really wanted to get some miles down. I took a short (30 sec walking break) after miles 5 and 9 which I used to eat a Gel pack. I was really happy with this run, my last four miles were all negative splits and my final mile was sub-8. I have been noticing some shoulder pain on my runs, feels like the front part of my shoulders are really tight and it is quite uncomfortable. I am able to manage it somewhat by shaking out my arms and changing the position of my arms, but I am a little concerned that this could really play out when I am on the trail for a really long time. Otherwise I didn’t have much problem with the mileage, the legs felt great, wasn’t breathing hard at all, and Sunday I felt little soreness. Just comparing this to some of my older runs, I am definitely not as fast, but my legs feel far stronger and I don’t feel as if I am putting forth as much effort to go the distance.
