02/02/2017 Tired legs, 4 days or running and cross training, 4 miler

In my second workout of the day, I ran a basic 4 miler.  I held a steady pace of about 7:45/mile for the duration.  I was definitely tired though, understandably.  I have 24 miles in for the week already and a couple cross training workouts.  

It is noticeable though, after about 4 weeks, my steady pace has dropped.  I started in January running around 8:30-8:40/mile comfortably.  Now, even on tired legs, I can go more at a pace around 7:45-7:55/mile.  I am planning to add some speed work one of these days and try to drive down my overall pace even more.

I do need to remember my long run pace needs to slow down sometimes.  I want that pace to be somewhere between 8:15-8:30/mile for now.
