It was 28 degrees but a wind chill is 17 degrees....burrr!!! It&#39;s funny though, I guess I overdressed because I was really sweating by the end. I ran the first 4 with Callie, then took off to complete the total 15. My goal was to bring my avg down to 7:45 by the end. Mission Accomplished! I was hoping for a slightly lower HR, this was not much improvement over my last 15 mile run, but I did feel much stronger and continued to increase the pace to the end (last mile the fastest)!

Got to get my confindence up for these longer runs. Funny how it seems so impossible to run 26 at even a faster pace while in training at this point. :-)</p> <p>My weight keeps going down, now it&#39;s at 151. This was a comfortable weatherwise running day for me at 62-67 degrees.</p> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width:337px;" width="340"> <colgroup> <col /> <col /> <col span="3" /> </colgroup> <tbody> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="width:65px;height:18px;"><strong>Mile</strong></td> <td style="width:76px;"><strong>Time</strong></td> <td style="width:65px;"><strong>HR</strong></td> <td style="width:65px;"><strong>HR %</strong></td> <td style="width:65px;">&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">1</td> <td>8:03:00</td> <td>136</td> <td>69%</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr height="17"> <td height="17" style="height:17px;">2</td> <td>7:36:00</td> <td>135</td> <td>68%</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr height="17"> <td height="17" style="height:17px;">3</td> <td>7:46:00</td> <td>148</td> <td>77%</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">4</td> <td>7:52:00</td> <td>153</td> <td>80%</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr height="17"> <td height="17" style="height:17px;">5</td> <td>8:12:00</td> <td>153</td> <td>80%</td> <td><strong>7:53:48</strong></td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">6</td> <td>8:00:00</td> <td>151</td> <td>79%</td> <td><strong>145</strong></td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">7</td> <td>8:05:00</td> <td>148</td> <td>77%</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">8</td> <td>7:58:00</td> <td>153</td> <td>80%</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">9</td> <td>7:52:00</td> <td>151</td> <td>79%</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">10</td> <td>7:59:00</td> <td>153</td> <td>80%</td> <td><strong>7:58:48</strong></td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">11</td> <td>7:50:00</td> <td>152</td> <td>80%</td> <td><strong>151</strong></td> </tr> <tr height="17"> <td height="17" style="height:17px;">12</td> <td>7:44:00</td> <td>153</td> <td>80%</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr height="17"> <td height="17" style="height:17px;">13</td> <td>7:45:00</td> <td>158</td> <td>84%</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">14</td> <td>8:00:00</td> <td>163</td> <td>86%</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr height="17"> <td height="17" style="height:17px;">15</td> <td>7:18:00</td> <td>163</td> <td>86%</td> <td><strong>7:43:24</strong></td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td colspan="2" height="18" style="height:18px;">.25 Mile Cool-Down</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td><strong>158</strong></td> </tr> <tr height="30"> <td height="30" style="height:31px;"><strong>Total</strong></td> <td><strong>118:00:00</strong></td> <td><strong>151</strong></td> <td><strong>79%</strong></td> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr height="21"> <td height="21" style="height:21px;"><strong>Pace</strong></td> <td><strong>7:52:00</strong></td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td><strong>WT</strong></td> </tr> <tr height="17"> <td height="17" style="width:65px;height:17px;"><strong>Temp</strong></td> <td style="width:76px;"><strong>67</strong></td> <td style="width:65px;"><strong>Humidity</strong></td> <td style="width:65px;"><strong>37</strong></td> <td style="width:65px;">&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr height="17"> <td height="17" style="width:65px;height:17px;"><strong>Dew Point</strong></td> <td style="width:76px;"><strong>40</strong></td> <td style="width:65px;"><strong>Wind</strong></td> <td style="width:65px;"><strong>15</strong></td> <td style="width:65px;"><strong>151</strong></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Sun, 24 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Dec 22, 2017 http://ptatum.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-22-2017.html Wrenched my back yesterday and had to skip my run.
