Tuesday's workout felt hard for the first couple of reps but after that I settled into it, could have done a couple more reps. Unfortunately I picked up a blister on the side of one foot... shoes had about 400mi and were due to be retired. To give it a chance to heal I stayed away from workouts for the rest of the week.
For Saturday's long run I tried to be as relaxed as possible and just let the miles tick over. Felt great aerobically at the end though legs were a bit heavy. I could definitely have gone further. For the first time I got a glimpse of the marathon distance being possible.
Going to rest tomorrow and hope that the blister is in good enough shape to attempt a workout later in the week.
