15 miles? Check.

Today's Workout: 15 miles at an 8:14 pace

Goal Workout tomorrow: NONE

Thought: "Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude." -Thomas Jefferson

Today I ran 15 miles, which is further than I've ever run in my life. I also ran it at a faster pace than my best half marathon pace, which was 8:17. Granted, I did it on a treadmill, but I wasn't completely stoked about this run today and I came and conquered. I hope getting these long distances in, and doing speed work, translates into meeting my 1:45 goal for the Provo River Half, August 8th. I'm not the best at following schedules and I felt like my trips to Hawaii and California the last few months really set me back. Consequently, today gave me a little hope. I'm excited I get to rest tomorrow! Shoot, I deserve it!
