Comments: I timed myself on a mile on the track, as part of a 1 mile virtual race.  I don't think I've run a timed mile since I was in school.  I did OK, especially considering I ran 4.5 miles to warm up (and then 3.6 to cool down.)

Distance: 13.1 miles

Time: 2:07

 

 

Pace: 9:41 per mile

Stretch: Yes

 

 

 

 

 

 

Weekly mileage: 13.1 miles

Cumulative mileage: 441.8 miles

 

 

 

Tomorrow: Cross training

 

Comments: I was viewing this half marathon as a 13 mile pace run.  I went out way, way too fast.  My first mile was 8:30!  However, I never let my pace drop below 10:00, and my overall pace was OK.  Now I just need to run twice that distance in twice that time!

July 19

Posted by bvcc Jul 19, 2008

Distance: 8 Kilometers (5 miles)

Time: 43:46

 

Pace: 8:45 per mile

Stretch: Yes

 

Weekly mileage: 20.1 miles

Cumulative mileage: 176.9 miles

 

Tomorrow: 10 miles

 

Comments:  My first race of the season.  I wasn't sure what kind of pace to even shoot for.  I ran the first 4K loop with my neighbor, then turned on the after-burners to come home in a "blazing" 43:46.  Irony:  It was my slowest 8K race ever, but it was also the first time I ever got an age group award: 5th place.  I did not ask, and do not want to know, how many men there were in my age group.
