Saturday Long Run
Today's long run consisted of 12 miles of mostly flat road except for one pesky hill. We were instructed to run the first 6 at an easy pace. I did mine in about 9:30 minute pace. The second 6 miles were to be at our goal race pace. I actually did it!! I have tried to keep a 7:40 pace 2 times now without success. I think having a running partner today with the same goal really helped me to stay focused. She pushed me and just knows how to keep pace! I just have to keep in mind that I still need to add on 9.5 more miles at this pace to accomplish my goal come race pace. I know it won't be easy, but I gained a bit more confidence after Saturday's practice run.
