Nailed it again! Today's 'strength' session involved four repeats of 1.5 miles at a pace of 7:35 (for a marathon goal pace of 7:45), with a half mile recovery jog in between.
I ran the repeats at 7:28 7:25 7:28 and 7:23. Still faster than I should, but I felt strong throughout.
Didn't feel my niggling pains while running fast, but they sure make their presence known when I slow down! Continuing with the ice/ibuprofin/foam rolling and stretching routine.
