Long, long, long run today.  First three hours were pretty easy, other than the frigging 20 mile per hour headwind, and 35 degree temperatures....  The last hour and 9 minutes were pretty close to torture, as my legs were TIRED!!

Took a few walk breaks, but I finished that damned run. 

One last long run in a couple of weeks, and it's MARATHON TIME, Baby.

 

Run
  • 26m 24s
  • 3.07 miles
  • 08m 36s /Mi
Easy recovery run, after yesterday's race.  Just trying to loosen everything up, to get ready for my 24 mile run tomorrow.... 

Run
  • 51m 41s
  • 6.50 miles
  • 07m 57s /Mi

Frost or Fog race in upper Bidwell Park.  Good overall race, splits of 7'47", 7'59", 8'30", 9'24", 5'52", 8'30", 3'36".  Quite a bit of uphill on mile 3 and 4 explains the longer splits, there is no explanation for the 5'52" mile - other than the mile marker being off!!!  I am sure I did not run a sub-6 minute mile LOL.

Anyway, happy with the times, given the hilly race course.   Hopefully somebody else will put the race into the race report system, so I can just plug my numbers into the report.

Swim
  • 25m
  • 700.00 yards
  • 03m 34s /100 yards
First swim in a long time...  100 yards kick, the 5x100 at about 2 min/100, then 100 side stroke.

Run
  • 54m 52s
  • 6.00 miles
  • 09m 08s /Mi
Hill run in upper park, in the dark, plus 6x600 hill repeats.

Run
  • 47m 11s
  • 5.00 miles
  • 09m 26s /Mi
Easy recovery run (only 12 hours from yesterday's run) at what I hope to be "marathon pace".  This pace would put me at a 4 hour, 7 minute marathon (which would be a 30 plus minute improvement from my last (and first) marathon time).
