Training for my first marathon in October. I am following Higdon's Intermediate 1 and did 14 miles yesterday at a pace nearing 10:30.
From a cardio standpoint, I felt like I could've easily kept going, but my legs were tiring and a little sore today. This is the furthest I have ever run (a half-marathon being the previous best), but my legs haven't been this tired from a run in a while.
Is this normal? I have always felt pretty good with my LHR's prior, even on the previous 12 & 11 milers.
This is obviously subjective, but come marathon time, will my legs be ready? Right now, that is my fear.
I ran a half-marathon 40+ minutes faster than my training run yesterday and I don't remember my legs being this tired.
Could all the extra steps from going slow play in?

WOW! A sub 6? Is that at MAF?
