We start with Boston Marathon training, a good half marathon race, a bad 10k race and what can be learned when you don’t run as well as you would’ve liked. We get into the Boston Marathon race itself, the course and what you should and shouldn’t do. We end with our commitment to running and how we sometimes find all kinds of ways to run, including waking up WAY too early.
Location: Pasadena, CA.
Temperature: Sunny, 75 degrees, 59% humidity
Type of Run: Easy
Length: 5.08 miles
Type of route: some gradual uphill and downhill, one uphill climb and one downhill descent
Time: 37 minutes, 26 seconds
Pace per mile: 7:22
Reason for Run: The purpose of this run was to take it easy a day after running 16 miles. This run lets me work the legs and get in a run but without the strain of longer runs. Usually, these runs are 6 to 6.5 miles but since I’m tapering I cut the length down to 5 miles.
How did I feel? Fine. I felt a little better than yesterday as far as being tired. I started this run feeling slightly sluggish but that went away after the first mile. I kept the pace nice and controlled and didn’t push it.
