good Marathon Training: Week 6 of 18 21.23 mi 02:56 08:16 pace

Another long run - done! At 75 degrees and 92% humidity, it wasn't the best of conditions, but it could have been worse. I had a slice of toast w/PB and headed out at 6:20. I didn't do all that well pacing myself to run consistent miles. My fastest was Mile 7 at 7:46 and my slowest was Mile 18 at 8:51. I went out 7 and came back to the car at 14 for liquids. My stop time was 3:42 which would make my overall pace 8:26. Then I did another 3.5 out and back to finish the last 7. I got several words of encouragement along the way, which helped a lot. Now that I'm home and showered and looking at the data, I feel pretty good about the run overall. This marks the 1/3 mark for training for the Marine Corps Marathon. Hard work is paying off. Yay!!

    In that humidity and at that temperature, that was absolutely awesome. Heck, at that pace, that was awesome regardless. Very well done Gail !

    Thanks everyone! All your words of support and encouragement mean so much to me. I need to save them for when I am 80 and can look back and think of this time of training. I say all this as I am watching Shelane compete in the women's marathon at Mile 22. Wow!
