Pretty pleased with this run. After slight disappointment of last week's long run where I did not negative split.  Really wanted to make sure that didn't happen again.  Probably went out a little faster than I should to negative split, but once I set the bar, I had no choice.  On return trip I had a 8:45 pace going for about 1/2, but slipped a little in 18-20 mile range.  I was working from mile 18 through the end (although last mile was 8:35-8:40ish) This run did remind me that no matter how good the early miles feel, the last few miles of a marathon are going to be uncomfortable no matter what.  Cardio and legs were good throughout, but my feet do get sore. (iced them when I got done).  Even though my shoes only have 300 miles on them will probably get new pair this week to try and help my feet. 

Nutrition and hydration was good with 8 bottles, 4 servings of shot bloks and enduralytes at 1 & 2 hour mark.  I will say though that I need to take in more eletrolytes either through more salt tablets or getting in some Gatoraide.  A few minutes after I finished, my calves were cramping bad. If that was race day I would still be out there. Also I had lots of salt build up on my face. So I will need to fix that.

Otherwise, this is #3 of the tri-fecta confidence builders.  1st was my PR at the 1/2 marathon, 2nd was last week's speedy performance at the 2 miler (6:38 avg) a day after running twenty miles and today's sub 9 pace with a negative split on 22 miles. :)

With school and activities ( not to mention working late) I am literally sticking miles in whereever I can.  While I am not getting in as many as I want, plan has enough cushion in it that I am doing ok with the total.

Another 'get as much as you can when you can' kind of run.  After 1st mile w/u, felt very smooth.

    Dylan's Run for Autism

    2. 6:35

    • Stretching
    • 10m

    So for a number of years, this is the day I go out to Madison and volunteer for IMMOO. This year, for various reasons, I did not.  This makes me a bit sad, so I wanted to do something positive, so I decided to do Dylan's Run for autism.  I have a niece who is severly autistic and did it for her. Doing this race was a really a last minute decision (barely made it before they closed registration) Wasn't really sure how I would do after running 20 miles yesterday.  Well I did pretty well.  This pace was actually pretty comfortable (although I was working pretty hard).  Very pleased with results. Finish 15th overall (out of 340) and...3rd in my age group (out of 17).  Second in AG was 12 seconds ahead and first in AG 20 seconds ahead. 

    So, it turned out to be a good decision.  Helped get a bad taste out of my mouth from yesterday's run, Helped a good cause and took home some hardware.  Hard to beat that.
