LESS EFFORT ... FASTER PACE ... !

One month ago the same effort, under the same conditions, yielded a 1:20 slower per mile average. I felt much better at the end and actually pushed the pace to a reasonable marathon pace on the last mile. No way I could have done two marathon pace miles but ones a start!

Entered two Half Marathons in the next few months. The first one will basiclly be a training run and hopefully the second will be to push the pace!

I'm unsure about entering Boston this year eventhough I have a qualifying time 20+ minutes faster than my qualifying standard. I would like to go but the expense may keep me from doing it this year.

This is my 4th 10 mile run since I started running again 2 months ago. It is the lowest HR run of any run I have done, long or short since I started back. I believe it shows good improvement in my cardio. On the negative side, my foot was really, really sore to start out today but on sore by the time I finished.

Longest run since February of this year. The I averaged 7:39 @ 153 HR. I have a way to go! The weather conditions were much better in February as you can imagine. :-)

I wasn't planning on a 15 miler but I woke up at 4:00 am and just couldn't go back to sleep. I finally decided to go out and run during the Tom Slick hours.

Avg Pace: 9:02 @ 143 HR
