8 miles

out, around lake a, and back. Very slow compared to recent runs. I assume it's the residual fatigue from 8, 8, 11, and 18, which is what I was looking for

Th - 8.3/1:24:58/138 bpm
Fr - 8.3/1:24:25/141
Sa - 11.1/1:55:40/138
Su - 18.4/3:16:38/147
Mo - 8.3/1:28:37/140

This article on Hanson's marathon training talks about residual fatigue and in fact utilizes it in order to limit the longest run to 16 miles. The idea is the 16-miler is like running the last 16 of the marathon, not the first 16.

I'm writing this Monday night and my legs feel "itchy" so I think I'll run tomorrow. Probably 8 again. It will be interesting to see if I can recover by running 8 or see if I need to cut back to 6 or rest altogher to recover.
