I broke this run up kind of the same way I broke down last week's long run. I started out with a 6 mile warm up and then would attempt to run the next 9 miles at around 6 minute pace. And then end with a 3 mile cool down. I was going to do 9 miles at 6:20 pace again but I started out the run with Sean and he suggested I run the workout at 6 minute pace. So that is what I did. He ran the first 3 miles of the workout with me and then completed his run and bailed. The 6 minute pace miles felt so unbelievably easy. So easy in fact, that I started the workout feeling like I was going at 6:30 pace when in fact I was jogging at 5:30 pace. I had to slow down pretty hard to get it back up to 6 minute pace. The 6 minute pace felt like a complete jog until the last mile and a half, I started tightening up a bit and slowed to 6:10 pace (I believe I was slightly dehydrated as I had a little salt on my face). This is a good sign.
