Did a 6 mile "tempo run" this mornting. That's a run that pushes your speed limits, but not a sprint. Some call it a "comfortably hard" run. Anyway something clicked in this morning and the whole thing was at an 8:48 min pace!
Now, I never even dreamed of sustaining 6 miles at under 9 min/mile. My CrossFit coaches are claiming it's the CrossFit workouts and I have say I can't really argue with them!
