Having a great couple days! Life is good. 🙂 Fun stuff happening.
Ran 16 miles filled with rolling hills today. 8:40 pace average. Felt great. Perhaps a bit dehydrated toward the end (which ends up showing up in my legs. Is that weird that I can feel dehydration in my legs?)
Here is what I love about training: When paces that were once hard, now feel easy. Check out my long run paces for this training cycle!
- 14 miles (8:14)
- 13 miles (8:33)
- 13.1 miles (7:41) (race)
- 14.6 miles (8:18)
- 15.7 miles (8:32) (hilly)
- 16.1 miles (9:22)
- 13 miles (9:17) (horrible, no good run)
- 20.3 miles (8:37)
- 20 miles (8:37)
- 16 miles (8:26)
- 16 miles (8:40) (hilly)
I love love love that most of these runs were at a pace that I used to consider marathon pace. And what is basically now my BQ pace. Time to start thinking on goal race time. Thinking that I’m gonna go for it – something fast. 🙂
