I have been putting together a series of race pace runs that are actually fairly easy to maintain from 3 miles to 6 miles. I feel like I can run the 7:30-ish pace for the full 10 miles no problem. This becoming more apparent as I am getting more rest and can run with energy. I was on vacation this week and ran only one time while relaxing at the beach, but the 7:00/mile pace over 2.61 miles I maintained was pretty easy. I have a little over one week left until this race and am feeling strong.
