training plan for today called for 10 miles @ goal marathon pace. according to my training plan which i've been basing my speedwork off of, that pace is 8:57...according to me, THAT IS NOT GONNA HAPPEN! i'm still a little confused/not sure what to call my goal pace :/ my 20 mile long run last weekend was at 9:30ish pace. keeping that pace for 26.2 is around 4:08. i think realistically, i would like to aim for between 9:30 and 9:45, which would put me between 4:08 and 4:15, which i would be SUPER happy with and i think is definitely attainable. however, this means that i really need to slow down my long runs and actually do my "goal pace" runs at this pace.
today i aimed for 9:15 (based on the fact that i did 20 at 9:30 on saturday). my legs were heavy and tight and tired right from the start. it's crazy how much fresher my legs feel in the morning vs. in the afternoon after a full day of work (on my feet all day). i did settle in to some miles that felt pretty good between 2 and 4 but once i hit the incline to the brooklyn bridge with all the tourists, i gave up a little. i walked for about 30 sec (and appreciated the gorgeous day in NYC) and then got on with it. i ran from the bridge down to the brooklyn bridge park and finally figured out how to follow this path to pier 6. i took another 30 sec break at mile 7 and then made myself push for 1 more mile. the last mile was actually my fastest i think :) instead of pushing for 10, i finished happy with the 8 quick miles and did the last 1.3 easy til home. legs were super tired after this, making me realize that this is definitely not my goal marathon pace and i must be more realistic about these runs, THEY ARE ON MY TRAINING PLAN FOR A REASON! for my drop back long run on saturday (15 miles), i'm hoping to run the first 11 at around 10:00 and then drop down to goal MP (9:30) for the 4 mile race in CP.
