I tried something different this morning. I decided to run 1 mile @ 8:15 then 1 mile @ 7:15 and continue this for my entire 15 mile run. I was very pleased with the results. It seems I do much better when I vary my pace and not just run a steady state. Even my overall HR was much better than on previous 15 mile runs. 7:40 @ 150 HR seems pretty good, this is much faster than my best marathon pace and HR at 15 miles. Hopefully good things are to come!

I am curious what you guys think about this workout...not necessarly the results but more the pholosophy. Is this something that's ever done in "real" training? I'm just kinda making my training up as I go along right now. I've wanted to jump into a specific program but just can't seem to do it.

Assuming the sub 7:15 is roughly your 1/2 marathon - marathon pace, it's a pretty good workout. It's probably not real taxing for you, but the variety is beneficial. You could probably keep that up through 20+ miles and it would be a decent way to get some marathon pace miles in. It's not as race specific as doing a solid block of miles, but it should be easier on the legs, too, so you should be able to bounce back quickly from this run. I bet tomorrow you feel pretty good.

Thanks DL, My HMP is really more like 7:00 so I think doing all the fast miles at that pace would have made it much harder. I agree that I could have kept this up for 20-25 miles (without the last two faster miles). I'm really curious about the slower part of the run where I allowed my HR to drop. In my fastest marathon I walked about 15 seconds at every water stop allowing my HR to go down. I'm just thinking that the way my body works it just needs a little break once in a while and it's then ready to work hard again. :-)

Sounds like long intervals to me, but I don't know anything; I just run :)
