I finally got that 12 mile run I’ve been talking about since April. 1:46:42 (8:51/mi). I’m tired and my knees are a little creaky, but I feel good. I think we should have run a bit slower, but Doug always wants to go faster.
I’ve looked at some numbers and it’s time to get more systematic: I need to more regularly plan speed, tempo, and long runs, and pace appropriately. My speed pace is fine, but I need to slow down the long runs a bit. I think this will help me do more of them, and that’s what I want to do.
So, time to build a schedule.
