Training Log: 19.2

Friday, 3/5: 7.4 miles in 60:00 @ 8:05/mi (PMP), pacing run

I like it when a workout is easy to understand: one hour at planned marathon pace. Today's training run simulates the first hour of the race. Felt good. In fact, I felt better and better as I went along, which is a nice sign.

Come to think of it, I felt best on Sunday's half-marathon effort during miles 7 and 8 too, but that was partially because they were among the least windy. The last 4 miles were especially unpleasant. If I had been paying more attention to wind, I would have ran the opposite way on my loop course.

No such worries on the treadmill this evening, of course.
