12 miles or something like that

Today's Workout: 12 mile intervals 1-3 miles at 8:00 pace, 300m resting interval, 3-6 miles 7:46 pace, 300m resting interval, 6-9 miles 8:00 pace, 300m resting interval, 9-12 miles 7:52 pace.

Tomorrow's Workout: unsure

I wasn't supposed to run my 12 mile run in intervals today, but I did. I don't know how that will translate race day, but I hope it doesn't set me back too badly. The positive thing about today's workout was that I hit my goal race pace, (8:00), and didn't ever run slower than that. I don't know why I decided to run intervals...because I was lazy I guess. At any rate, I haven't been really in the mode for running long distances because of the heat, so I'm glad that run's over and it's time to taper.


  1. Awesome run! Now enjoy your taper and get ready for race now!

  2. that is quite the workout! nice job on the run and hitting your goal pace!

  3. That's really nothing to worry about. Your rest breaks were short and your pace the rest of the workout was on target or better. I think it will actually translate quite well on race day. The taper and the adrenaline of race day will easily erase the 1K of rests you did in this workout. In fact, that's probably a better 12 miler than I did before my half marathon in January and I ran 1:38:57. Great job.

  4. Thanks for the input Brian. Great time on your half by the way. You made me feel better about this run though.
