MLR Today, (learned that term from Slow Joe :-).

Last week's long run was supposed to be 18 @ 8:11 pace (but I missed that run). This week was supposed to be 13 @ 7:41 (and I didn't run this pace). But I guess if you average the two runs I pretty much hit the mark :-)

One thing I noticed was how consistant my HR was throughout the run. I don't think it's ever stayed so even for so long. The 27 degree temperature may have had something to do with this. It was cold but I bundeled up pretty well and luckily I didn't really get too cold, not even my hands or feet.

I have been just drinking water on all of my runs but today I just drank gatorade and took one gel during this run.

When I finished the run I felt pretty good. I believe I could have run a few more miles around an 8:00 pace but I couldn't have complete a full marathon. I guess I still need some more training and conditioning!

Really didn't have a specific target but would have liked to run a 7:45 pace. Main focus was to keep it somewhat comfortable for as long as possible.

That day off worked out well. That is a really good run. Nice job!

From JG on Sat, Dec 22, 2012 at 09:26:33 from 174.49.78.66

Those are solid paces! About 1 min/mile faster than I went on my 12 miler! You should continue to use gatorade & gels in your long run to simulate race day ... just my opinion. :)

From SlowJoe on Sat, Dec 22, 2012 at 09:40:23 from 69.131.141.92

If you can do that pace for a 15-mile training run, you can easily do it in a race for 26.2 (especially if you finished with some energy to spare, and it looks like you did). Nice run! I mean, nice MLR.

I agree, even though it was a good run anyway, I think the heart rate is the most impressive part. So Cowtown is your next marathon? That course has some hills in it, but fewer than you run on a daily basis, so it should be perfect.

Thanks guys, I was glad to get a somewhat long run completed. I ran another 15 miler today with even better results. I'll post it later but I averaged 7:42 with a HR of 152.

From I Just Run on Mon, Dec 24, 2012 at 12:37:05 from 166.137.156.166

Cowtown is my next marathon :-)

Have you ever looked into El Paso? I am sure it is farther ... But the elevation profile is oh so inviting!
