Well, I ran my first 20(+) run for Boston training today. All was good up until mile 18, about 15 of these miles were good marathon pace miles. Then it was tough! The last two (21,22) cool down miles were brutal. I probably shouldn't have jumped from 15 mile long runs to a 22 mile run. I think I got dehydrated, by the way I was feeling. This is typically my downfall in long runs. The first 17 felt pretty good with pretty much the paces I wanted to hit. Got 3-4 more of these runs before boston. :-(
