First day of official training for NYC marathon in November and it went pretty well. Slightly cooler out there this morning than its been lately. Dew point was actually in the 60s (barely at 69). There was even one spot where I crossed a small bridge where the air almost felt cool, and with my lollipop course I got to cross that spot twice. My garmin corrupted this run somehow, so the only details I can see are total time and distance. 74/69F, 84H. Distancias #2.

    Woot! Way to kick things off Jim. Just do the work right now - pace will come.

    This was actually pretty much right on goal pace. I use smart coach (http://smartcoach.runnersworld.com/) for my training plans which gives you target pace as well as distance -- easy run pace this week is 7:41. On my own I tend to run my easy runs too fast, so I like having a goal pace to rein me in (or push me on in the case of tempo runs).

    Great start. I used smart coach as well and, you're right, it really helps to have a plan that gives target paces, especially for easy runs.

    Solid! Hope the hip feels better, the weather stays cool(er) and the miles keep coming! Good luck with the training :)
