WoooHooo....BOSTON...!!!

This was by far my very best 20+ run ever....! I planned my usual 20 mile run targeting it in four sections (5 @ 8:00 pace - HR @ 145, 5 @ 7:45 pace - HR @ 150, 5 @ 7:30 pace - HR @ 155, 5 @ 7:15 pace - HR @ 160, then a final push for 2 miles at what ever the pace and HR would allow). Wow was I supprised. I had to keep speeding up to keep the HR up to were I had planned, the paces felt good even when I was running my 15-20 mile section. I did feel a little stressed on mile 21-22 but my legs still had some spring and weren't feeling heavy. My cardio is what was hurting in on mile 21-22.

This run improved my 20+ fastest by 13 seconds per mile with an equilivant HR.

I know this is probably more information than any of you want to see but I'm posting below all of my 20+ training runs so you can see the progression since 2011 when I first started running.

From Derunzo on Tue, Mar 25, 2014 at 12:06:08 from 24.218.179.128

Great training run! Lot's of fast miles in there! Can't wait to see you go above and beyond in Boston!

From DLTheo on Tue, Mar 25, 2014 at 20:16:51 from 76.28.161.119

Congrats on the great fitness! Looks like you will be ready to pop a great race at Boston!

From Yasir on Tue, Mar 25, 2014 at 22:20:50 from 99.20.240.112

Wow it looks like you just ran Boston great pace for a long run. I can wait to see how you do.

From I Just Run on Wed, Mar 26, 2014 at 11:31:20 from 67.79.11.242

Thanks guys! I was really happy with this run. If I can run similar at Boston (which I think I can) I will beat my goal by a mile! That's assuming the weather conditions are good too.
