    great Tempo Wednesday 6 mi 00:40 06:42 pace

    alright Charlotte Run #2 5 mi 00:44 08:51 pace

      What was your pace? 6:50 ish? How did it feel? I always felt that 'marathon' pace seemed more difficult in training, maybe a little over-analyzing going on, more distractions in a race.

      Yeah, right around 6:52 pace. It wasn't hard but it definitely had me questioning my ability to keep it up for the length of a marathon. I think I will be able to achieve my goal, but I need to put a lot more work in.
