This last weeks training in review:
Saturday: 20 miles (personal record)
Total for the week: 40.7 (new personal high)
The 20 mile run was intimidating to say the least, but it went much better than I was expecting honestly. I decided to try out my new fuel (keeping it under wraps til after the marathon, hoping not to jinx myself) and my new hand-held because I think its what I want to use for the marathon (worked well). Once I actually got out there and got started I felt strong... for the first time ever I ran 13.1 miles, every step without needing a bathroom or walk break! That was an amazing feeling. (I have run every step once, and not used the restroom once, but this was the first time not needing either.)
|I am allowed to look bad, I just ran 20 miles!|
I am pretty proud of my splits except for a few, but overall.. not bad:
ANYONE HAVE ANY THOUGHTS ON PACE TEAMS?!?!
I am trying to decide whether to run with a pace team or on my own...
