Saturday I had my last long run of MARATHON TRAINING!!!! I was supposed to do 8 miles, but because I shifted around my schedule earlier in the week, I had decided on 10. To put it bluntly: this run sucked! I had a fun running buddy for the first 5 miles. I was such a slow poke and I felt like I was running my booty off. Blech. At some point I just resigned to the fact that the run was going to be slow and just went with it. The last 3 miles in to insane winds didn't help. But, I always believe that a couple of crappy runs just mean that an awesome one is on the horizon. Long run = crappy run. Upcoming marathon = stellar. :)
Also, one cannot complain about running the end of November in shorts and a t-shirt. INSANE.
I did 9.16 miles (yes, the fact that I didn't end the run at an even 1/4 mile increment tells you how OVER the run I was :p) in 1:30:59 for a pace of 9:55.
