Week 9 had a similarly quirky schedule to Week 8. The first three runs of the week were each set for 8 miles, though the last went a little long when I ran to work. Tuesday’s 8-miler was a great interval workout with five 800 meter repeats and I nailed all my splits. Huzzah! I’ll attribute it to my new Brooks Ravenna 2 shoes (which I
forgot haven’t gotten around to mention) which are a little lighter and more responsive. Saturday I wore the same Ravenna 2’s for the group long run to see how they’d do for a moderately long distance and felt great the whole time. I’m getting close to declaring them my race shoes over my old standby Adrenalines.
