Morning run, no wind, temp 60'

Legs felt ok but not fresh. 

Miles 6.1,  Time 46:30,  Mile Avg. - 7:37

Then ran one mile with Dallas in 7:25


Noon run, low wind, sunny, temp 87'

I ran with Eric May which was good because it slowed me down.  I was only going to run 5 miles but decided to go with him an extra 2.  My legs did feel tired by the end of the run.  I'll probably take tomorrow off and let them recover.

Run easy 7 tomorrow. Tired legs = perfect opportunity to get fit for the marathon. Also, once you are fit, you should be very careful distinguishing between true fatigue and regular training sluggishness . It is possible, and is actually quite common for me, to have one without the other. For me the test is after a warm-up go out at half-marathon race pace. If I can hold it for three miles, there is no fatigue. Otherwise, I start losing it between 1.5 and 2 even though I may feel perfectly fine during the warm-up and in the first mile.
