Ahhhh...I wanted to do better on this run. The goal was 7:41 @ 13 miles. I started out the first three miles to achieve this but then hit the big hill and dropped several seconds. After mile 6 I was back close to goal pace but I know I was in trouble. I could tell I was getting too hot and wouldn't be able to finish strong, like I needed to, to bring the overall pace in to a 7:41. 

I guess I could probably hit my target if the weather was cooler with less humidity but this kind of run does nothing for your confidence. I need a cool day and a nice "good" long run to change my attitude!

Next time you have a cooler day with low dew point, choose a flat course and make it happen. Even if you have to run 13 times around a 1 mile loop to keep the course flat. The nice thing about a loop is you don't have to carry your water with you.

The benefits of running in the heat will show up in the cooler weather for sure. Nice Job.

I need to go somewhere else to find a flat route. Any direction is hills within the first 1/4 mile. I believe its 1200' elevation gain on this run. I just consider this a runfail because of how I felt afterwards not necessarly because of the pace.

Effort was there, and that's the important part. Heat'll take it out of you. Way to stick with the run and finish it out. 14 seconds isn't far off anyways!

Nice run. You probably have the cool front by now, such as it is? I think it is coming in later today here.

From I Just Run on Sat, Sep 21, 2013 at 21:43:46 from 186.32.251.228

Ha ha Flat, I flew further south so that ciol front wouldn't get ne. I'm in El Salvador.

Blame it on the fast first mile ... what are you doing running a 7:40 mile when your target is 7:41!

Very solid run in the heat, rejoice don't grumble! :)
