Took it easy today then picked up the pace for miles 10-13.5 to about 7:30 pace then fell hard tripping on some trolley tracks in west philly. Was able to lightly jog home after walking for a bit after the fall.

I was hoping to run an additional mile at 6:18, but just didn't have it today. I dont think my fitness is quite there yet to jump in pace since my last tempo run. This is the first time during this 8+ weeks of marathon training that any doubt has crept in.

I will plan to scale back my goal pace a few seconds per mile for the 10k next weekend.

21 miles in 2:39:52 with about 1000 feet of elevation gains.

It was a very good run today and a confidence booster after falling a bit short on my tempo run earlier this week.

10k next Sunday in Phoenix, AZ.
